Auto Clearing Motor Speedway (ACMS) (formerly Bridge City Speedway) is a paved oval auto racing facility located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. It is owned and operated by the Saskatoon Stock Car Racing Association Ltd. (SSCRA).

SSCRA was formed in 1954 and initially operated out of the 8th Street Racing Oval, near what is now McKercher Drive and Moss Avenue in Saskatoon, which was removed to make way for residential development. The original Bridge City Speedway, located northeast of Saskatoon, was in operation from 1971 until 2005. However, the city annexed the property in 2000, and let SSCRA know at that time that the land would be re-allocated for development. In 2004, SSCRA acquired a new 35-acre (140,000 m2) site just north of the city limits, near the junction of highways 11 and 12. Construction of the new track began April 2005, and it was open for racing in 2006.

Auto Clearing Motor Speedway has several racing classes, they are Sport Compact Mini Stock, Pro Truck, Western Elite, Street Stock, Super Late Model, and Thunder Stock but its premier event is the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series which made its first trip in 2009.
