The Wisconsin International Raceway (WIR) is a stockcar racing oval and dragstrip in the Town of Buchanan, in Outagamie County, just outside Kaukauna, Wisconsin, USA.

The main track is a half mile D-shaped paved oval. Inside the half mile track is a quarter mile paved conventional oval. The half mile track was added around the existing quarter mile in 1969.

There are six divisions at the track. The Super Late Model and Late Model divisions race on the half-mile track.

The Super Stocks, Sport 4's (stock four cylinders modified for racing), and Wisconsin Sport Trucks divisions race on the quarter-mile track. The Figure 8 cars end programs on the Figure 8 track. An automated timing and scoring system was set up for the 2007 season, and each racecar carries a transponder.

The Fox River Racing Club began helping promote the weekly events in 1975.

The track had an annual American Speed Association event. The track resumed hosting ASA events after the series was reorganized, and it held an event in 2007. Earlier the USAC Stock Car series had raced at the track. The ASA series returned to the track in 2014 now sanctioned as the ARCA Midwest Tour.

Also, NASCAR announced it was ending its AutoZone Elite divisions, which featured regional late model racing, following the 2006 season. Soon after, the ASA began sanctioning replacement series around the United States. The ASA Midwest Tour and ASA Northwest Tour were launched for 2007 and the ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour for 2008.
