Cocopah Speedway in Yuma

Cocopah Speedway Racing Season Back On

By Brenda AustinDrivers, start your engines! As fans returned to their favorite spot on the bleachers of the Cocopah Speedway in Yuma for opening night on February 5, drivers were going over last minute details with their race teams before hitting the track.

This is the speedway’s second season under the Cocopah tribe’s ownership, which purchased the 100-acre property the track is on in 2005. Bounded on three sides by tribal land, the mesa the speedway is located on was originally purchased to ad to the tribe’s existing land base.
