In 1945 John Nuckles purchased 50 acres of land for the future race track. The track was opened in 1946 as a dirt track for motorcycles. In 1950 the track was given lighting and in 1957 the track was paved for the first time as car racing, specifically stock car racing became more popular. The track was run by the late Nuckles for many years, and is still owned by the Nuckles family today. Among the drivers to make their names at CMS are, Neal Sceva, Dick Freeman, Benny Parsons and Ralph O'Day.
The track is one of two tracks in Ohio to be granted a NASCAR sanctioning agreement, the other being Kil-Kare Speedway. It hosts Whelen All-American Series (formerly the Dodge Weekly Racing Series) races sanctioned by NASCAR. Weekly race series are late model, sportsman and street stock divisions. Occasional race series include midgets, legends, and winged-sprint cars.
It also hosts many exhibition events such as trailer, school bus, and NASCAR "legends" races that feature NEXTEL Cup drivers. Even demolition derbies can be worked into the rotation, as well as school bus figure 8 racing.
