The speedway was about 2 miles South of Douglas on the E. side of US31. It was a 3/8 dirt track with quite a bit of bank. It had Lights for night racing. It was a fast neat race track. Pits were outside the 1st turn. In the 50s they ran 3 classes of cars, Stocks, Modifides and Super Modifides. Some drivers names I recall are Glen Rocky, Jim Murphy, Junior Turpstra, Norm Nelson, Bob DePaw, The Lockwood bros., the Vilwalk bros., Dale Adams, The Covey bros., Ralph Baker, Chuck Grano, Chuck Neal, Gordon Vanderbeak, Butch Gould and lots more.
The Track ran Friday nights, in the late 50s Hartford was re-built with a bank added to the track and lots of the cars started running there instead of Airpark. Outside of a music Concert I don't recall of any event that was held there after 1960. Thru the years it gradually turned into a Blueberry farm.
