Palm Beach International Raceway (formerly Moroso Motorsports Park) is a motorsports facility located west of Jupiter, Florida.
The facility opened in 1964, costing a reported $1.5 million to build. The track was originally named “Palm Beach International Raceway” and was owned by local contractor Joe Bucheck Jr. and his brother Edward. In March 1965 the inaugural race was held at the track. Some 10,000 spectators attended the event, which was a series of sports car events.
In 1981, Dick Moroso the owner of Moroso Racing Parts, purchased the track and renamed it “Moroso Motorsports Park”. In 1982, Moroso spent a reported $100,000 to upgrade the facility to host the opening event in the SCCA Trans Am Series.
The facility hosted several SCCA national and regional events. The track was also host to several IHRA and NHRA special events and the “Super Chevy Show”, which drew more than 100,000 spectators over the three-day event for several years. The event was later replaced with the “All Chevy Show” which generally occurs in March
In 2008, a group of local motorsports enthusiasts purchased Moroso Motorsports Park. The new owners closed the track, remodeled it into a state-of-the-art motorsports facility and changed the track’s name back to “Palm Beach International Raceway.” The old facility was completely altered, adding a new road course similar to the original but with some minor modifications. Low-glare lighting was added to the track along with brand new safety barriers and an amount of other upgrades. The track hosted an ARCA Remax Series event and several drag racing events.
The facility is popular with teams from all forms of racing for testing. Several IndyCar Series teams use the track for winter testing, as do several sports car teams from the Rolex Sports Car Series including locally based Orbit Racing.
