The track is visible on historicaerials. com, just search for Jeddo MI, from 1959 showing both the 1/2 and 1/4 tracks, and in 1964 just the 1/4 remains. it is directly to the south of the woodlot pictured here, the 'bottom' (probably 3-4?) turns of the track seem to be still barely visible on google earth.

Rusty There was a family that lived or lives in Jeddo by the last name of Grillo or something like that they raced there and at Motor City Speedway, the boys names were Evan and Hank, think they lived north of the track.

Was there many times, never many cars:A few things I remember it was very hard to see the cars in turn 1 and 2 Cliff Richardson and Wild Bill Evens had a match race there, it way HYPED on the local radio station for about a week. Remember the Jacobs Brothers taking Cliff Richardsons NEW chevy coupe with a GMC 270 6 banger in it for a ride and they dumped it in turns 3-4, was not even painted yet, this happened after the regular racing was over for the day. I always remember going home ans stopping at the Dorsey House for a berger and a cold soda.

If Dondi Dons location of the track is correct, then the track wouldve been 1 mile NORTH of Jeddo.

I started out as a half mile track, then they turn it into a 1/4 mile track. I remember one time there wasnt many cars there, the announer said there was bunch of cars coming from detroit, only one car show up. the track was too far in the country, to be successful.
