Berlin Raceway is a 0.4375 mile long paved oval race track in Marne, Michigan, near Grand Rapids. It opened in 1950. It was originally a horse track before World War II. The track is notable for the lack of an outside wall on the back straightaway, a unique feature for a national series such as ARCA. In addition, the short straights make it feel almost circular. Berlin's current track record is 12.513 seconds, set by Brian Gerster in 2018 in a winged sprint car.

Berlin Raceway takes its name from the city of Marne's original name "Berlin," which was changed due to Anti-German sentiment following World War I.
