The two tracks you mentioned are different tracks. Jones Speedway was indeed just south of Allegan. It was promoted by the Jones family, thus the name. It ran from 1950 to about 1960. It was always a dirt track. I would love to see photos from there. M-40 Speedway (or now called Thunder Valley Speedway) is a relatively new track. The neat paved oval opened in 1997. It is located near Jones, Michigan, which would be about 50 miles farther due south of Allegan. The new track is located 2.8 miles north of SR 60 on SR 40.
