Travel Routes

This year, the North/South 100 weekend coincides with the annual 127 Yard Sale. For those unfamiliar with this, the 127 yard sale is a collection of yard sales that line the sides of the road the entire length of route 127. Florence Speedway sits on route 127 as, through the area, it follows the same path as US 42. During the days of the yard sale, cars will line both sides of the road, including parking on the edge and even most of the way on the road in spots. People will walk between cars, down the road, and even in front of oncoming traffic. It is recommended that while traveling down the road, you use extreme caution. We cannot stress this enough as cars will stop in the middle of the road, people will walk right out in front of you, and cars will pull out on the road in front of you. On a normal 127 yard sale day, it can easily take 30+ minutes to travel the nine miles from I-75 to Florence Speedway. In anticipation of this, we are suggesting some alternate routes to the track:

For those using online map sites, the track's physical address is 12234 US 42, Walton, KY 41094.
