A 1-mile dirt track was present at the Fairgrounds from 1910 to 1965; this is the track covered here.

There have also been 1/2 mile dirt (1934-1937), 5/8 mile dirt (1938-1940); 5/8 mile paved (1941-1972), 1/8 mile dirt (1985-present) and 1/8 mile figure-8 (2001-present) tracks at the Arizona State Fairgrounds.

The grandstand built for the 1-mile dirt track stands and serves the current 1/8 mile tracks, which are temporarily installed in front of it.
