Kenosha Velodrome Racing, LTD, a 501(c)3 organization, is the governing body of the Washington Park Velodrome. While we don’t actually own the velodrome, we are a group of dedicated volunteers who act as guardians of the tack on behalf of the Kenosha Parks Department. Our role is to maintain the legacy of track racing in Kenosha, to promote the benefits of track cycling and to support all participants.
The Washington Park Velodrome opened in July 1927, which makes it the oldest operating velodrome in the country. Kenosha’s 333 meter track with 28 degree banked corners has produced countless National, Olympic and World Champions over the years. Washington Park Velodrome has been home to the National Championship over seven times. In 2015, the City of Kenosha allocated $700,000 to reconstruct the velodrome. This is the fourth time “The Bowl” has seen major upgrades. This time the surface was changed from asphalt to concrete and the corner banking was increased. This was done to keep up with the ever increasing need to safely increase speed in the races.
Board meetings are held the second Monday of each month and are held at 7:00pm at the UAW, Local 72, 3615 Washington Road, Kenosha, WI.
