History of Double X Speedway

Where it all began

 Woodson Lee Carpenter began his racing career in 1950 where he was known as "Old Pro". At age 38 he was one of the oldest drivers  in the Central Missouri Racing Association. He drove modified hot rods under the number 66  but took on the number 24 from Junior Hower in the mid 1950's. After a serious accident during a race at the State Fair Speedway causing injury in the early 1960's, Woody then purchased land west of California, Missouri where he built his own race track naming it Woody's Speedway and opening it in October of 1965.  In 1970, Woody became track promoter and operator of the Saline County Speedway, formally known as Sportsman's Speedway, in Marshall, Missouri. He operated and maintained Woody's Speedway and Saline County Speedway until September 1983 when he relinquished his responsibilities in Marshall as he decided he was getting too old to drive back and forth from California to Marshall.  In 1988, at the age of 66, Woody sold Woody's Speedway to Fred Hohman where the speedway was renamed XX Speedway. Woody continued to be involved in racing, helping prepare XX Speedway for the Sunday night races and as owner of his son, Lanny Carpenter's 360 sprint car bearing Woody's race car number 24
