Kentucky’s Soggy Bottom Speedway Gets New Owner and Name for 2011
by Chris McWilliams on March 17, 2011
A new name and owner is now in place for the former Soggy Bottom Raceway in Morgantown, KY. The track was purchased by Caneyville, KY’s Richard Ashby along with Suburban Carpets. The first step to a fresh new start for the 3/8 mile speedway is a brand new name. The track will now be known as Cedar Ridge Speedway. The new ownership feels that the new name will help ease some minds and let everyone know that this is a new beginning for the speedway.
