Sprint Car Racing
The Howard Johnson of Lima is proud to be the offical hotel partner of Ohio Sprint Speedweeks and Waynesfield Raceway Park!
The Howard Johnson is the perfect place to stay when racing in the Lima area. We are conveniently located off Interstate 75 and close to Limaland Speedway, Waynesfield Raceway Park, Millstream Speedway and Eldora Speedway. We also have plenty of room for trailer parking and a self service carwash located just accross the street!. If you are a racer or just a fan you will enjoy all the Howard Johnson has to offer. We offer all of our guest a free Rise & Dine breakfast, so you can start your day off right. We are within walking distance to several restaurants, and you can enjoy a nightcap at our lobby lounge before turning in for the night. Getting that race car clean before the big race wont be a problem, we are located across the street from a 24HR car wash.
