Yes my Uncle took my brother & I to the races once at Delaney Speedway. Think it was about 1947 and it seemed to be about a mile west of Covell Rd on the northwest corner of a dirt road One of the racers got hurt bad the day we were there.

If the photo is correct about the speedway located in a cow pasture at M45 & 8th Ave, then this would make it Ottawa county not Kent.

Think I found it! The photo is the right area. I found a ghost on the 1999 USGS aerial. The Southern turns would be the upper of the the 2 concrete driveways, while the Northern end would be just left of the white spot just left of center at the top. The straights would be 450' & 900' to the west of 8th Ave NW. Dover Drive if extended west would cross just south of the center of the infield.

Does anybody have any more info on this?? I grew up right in this area and wondered where exactly this track was located and when it was raced on. As a matter of fact Berlin is only about 2 miles from this spot. Last thing I remember named Delaney was a school on that corner.

Allen Brown's book America's Speedways states that Delaney Speedway (Standale) was a 1/2 mile dirt oval located at M-45 & 8th Ave in a cow pasture.
