Dirt Oval - Operating Dates: 1948
What you see in this photo is the hasting k-mart.the main road to the north(top)is m-37/43 or state street. To the right is market street. This is where the Barry County free fair was held for years. It saw its share or race cars as well as motorcycles and was always called a half mile track but seemed much bigger than that. Track and grounds we sold out to K-Mart and moved west of town to its present location. After a lot of arguing with the horse people we were finally allowed to run a demo derby during the fair in 1970 (i think). Anyway I won the first event ever at the fair. Really get a kick out of your site. Thanks.
