My grandfather, Gordon Buss Miller, built and operated this track - as well as the nightclub across the street. This was also called The Rendezvous. I don't know a lot of the history, though I was told by my parents that the top Indy Car drivers frequented this track and the midget racing circuit of the time. I am also told that my grandfather was a colorful man and that shenanigans similar to the prohibition era were common. The track was lost in 1949 in a Federal Court ruling that awarded the property to the lien-holder.

If anyone has any more history about this please post.

I grew up in Sister Lakes, MI. During the 60s the racetrack was used for racing go-karts.
