Hi there, This Hornes Speed bowl, Might have been the Old Dust Bowl, That was located up on the hill by Todd Lake, Located on 9 mile road If that is the same one. My Father, Phil Roggow used to go there and watch, back in the days also.

I wonder if this is the track my late father reffered to as Ashton Speedway? My late uncle Fred Naylor ran a 40''s coupe at a track near Ashton in the Fifties. I had a picture of him and the car at one time. He was sponsored by Horne''s Motor Sales. Please let me know if anyone ever finds the actual location of the old track.

A more accurate location would be 4 miles north and 3 to 4 miles east of the U. S. 10 & U. S. 131 interchange.

I am attempting to see if the site might be visible on a site like Terraserver. Havent found anything yet. Ill be doing a ground search and talking to some residents of the area.

If this is the place I remember (and it was the only race track Im aware of in the area) it was located 5 miles north of Reed City and 2 or 3 miles east off Old 131. Our familys funeral home ran an ambulance service back then (as did many small town funeral homes). I remember this track operating in the late 50s, possibly into the early 60s. We would take an ambulance out there on standby. I was rather young then so the memory is hazy.
