General Information:

Even though the track was considered to be on Ravenswood, I have used the address of Capitol Drive as it is the closest lot with an address. The outline of the track can be just barely seen just West of this address. It is an empty lot as of 2024.

Update 03-05-2023: Additional articles have been submitted that seem to indicate this track was also known was Blue Water Speedway in the late 1940's. The location description from the newspapers is the same and some of the same racers competed here. I have posted the articles below.

Special thanks to long-time submitter Dave Dobner for this one.

Marysville operated in 1946-1947 only and disappeared soon after. The track was operated by Rino Manfrin. The location at the time was given as Carolina Ave and Second St which as of 2023 don't seem to exist. Here is the correct Google Map Link.

The 1946 ad indicates 8 cars at a time would be racing. Some of the racers were: Bud Stevens, Frank Jeroue, Dave Storey, Mike DuLude, Chuck Streeter, Ed Hayes, Jim Niedy, Frank Tracey, Brice Story, and others. Some of those drivers were locals, others were coming in from Detroit and Port Huron.

As of 2023, there is virtually no trace of the track. The property it was on is land-locked, with no access road. It is an empty area of field close to some housing developments that have been established over the years.
