I found a 1947 aerial and it was definitive for the location of the track which was the NW corner of Lake Michigan Drive and 8th Ave. I am using the address of the church on that corner for reference and mapping purposes. There doesn't seem to be a trace of the old track left today. If you didn't know it was there you never would.

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.
