General Information:

Update 02-25-2024: I found some ads for this track and it seems to have operated mainly in the 1940's, specifically 1949. Like Whiskey Ridge, the spelling Whisky and Whiskey were used which makes it somewhat confusing. The location is described as 2 1/2 miles West of Wolf Lake Fish Hatchery which still exists. South of that, an outline of a track can be seen in the 1955 aerial photo. I have used an address just South of the lot as the farmland that sits on the old track lot has no address. The track was just East of 30th St and just South of M-43 if I have the lot location right. I see nothing else in that area that resembles a track.

The dates most people are using for this track are the 1960's and 1970's but it doesn't seem to add up as any track operating in that time period would have had newspaper ads of some sort. There are none, only the ones from the 1940's. I do agree with the fact it was a dirt oval. The track was operated by Everett Widmeyer
