Plans for the 2006 season at the Scotland County Speedway are already planned out by RL Promotions.

Then on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 23-24, the first annual Memphis Spring Nationals will kick off the 2006 season. The O'Reilly Auto Parts United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) will make their first stop on April 1 and then again on Aug. 5.

The battle for track points will get underway on April 15 and will end on Aug. 26. The Late Models will make five visits to the speedway in 2006, with the first being on April 22. The other dates for Late Models are set for May 13, June 10, July 8 and Aug. 12. The 360 and 305 Sprints will make a stop at the track during the 2006 Scotland County Fair on June 20.
