DuQuoin State Fairgrounds Racetrack is a one mile long clay oval motor racetrack in Du Quoin, IL, about 60 miles southeast of St Louis, MO. It is a stop on the ARCA tour.
Also the Du Quoin State Fair Grounds was the original home of the Hambletonian, America's premier harness racing event. Currently the race is called the World Trotting Derby. Both off track and on track betting is allowed.
While in years past it was known for hosting named entertainment for variety shows, the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds still brings great name music to Southern Illinois.
