Default Re: Shelly Park Speedway Idaho Springs, Co.

I'd like more information on Shelly Park. I asked about it at the history museum in Idaho Springs a few years back, and they didn't know much. One man who raced at Lakeside in the early 1960's came from Idaho Springs and enjoyed the racing better here than at Shelly Park. He told me that the rule was that if you broke out one of the posts holding the "guard rail", which was wood, you had to come out during the week and replace it. They were real careful because of that. His name is Russ Sutherland.
