General Information:

Update 2/26/2024: The official address of this track was 625 W Bristol Rd. That is no longer operable in the modern era so I am using the address of a building where I believe the track was based on the 1957 aerial photo. The track was said to be off of Bristol Rd just West of Saginaw. I found a faint oval near that site so I think we have it.

Dirt Oval - Operating Dates: 1939-1942

6/5/2015 - Randy Cronk
My mom used to sneak a peak through the fence and watch the races when she was a little girl at this track. Heard they helped the Catholic Church across the street get money for their building then helped shut the track down. Heard it from a reliable source and not mentioning any names but gave up his Catholic faith because of that.
