Default Re: Shelly Park Speedway Idaho Springs, Co.

Thanks for posting this Chris! Indeed, this is the same track I had misidentified as "Shelby" in a post a couple of years ago. In fact, you must have been the one to show me the program from this track many years ago. I knew I had seen one, but couldn't remember where.

Thanks for setting the record straight Professor! I've always had a fascination with this old long lost track. It's not even mentioned in my 1996 version of "America's Speedways - Past & Present" book.

The few guys I talked to who remember running there told me they kept blowing out tires because of rocks that protruded from track surface.

Also, Ron Plumlee says he can add a little info about this track as well.....
