The Kenosha County Fairgrounds is the home of Wilmot Raceway, the Kenosha County Fair, and various other events.

Wilmot Raceway brings you the best Dirt Track Racing in the Midwest. Racing takes place seasonally - primarily on Saturday nights. Events include the racing of IRA Sprints, wingLESS Sprints, Mini-Sprints, Modifieds, Street Stocks, Bandits, and more. This is a 3/8-mile clay, semi-banked oval.

Weekly events draw drivers from southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Wilmot is also a stop on national tours, which will draw cars from multiple states and across the country.

It’s believed that a race track first opened in the same general area in the early 1950s. The current location opened in the early 1970s at the Kenosha County Fairgrounds.
