Jungle Park Speedway

I roadtripped out east with Tom & Larry to camp out at some state parks and take in a couple of sprint car races. Our first track was the remains of the Historic Jungle Park Speedway, which ran (off & on) from 1926 to 1960, with its peak being in the 1930’s & 40’s.
The first three photos are of the track in its hayday, and the last three I took over the weekend. One section of the tiered grandstands remains, and you can still see the bank of the old track which is now covered with grass.
Jungle Park is in Indiana near Turkey Run State Park, which itself is worth a hike-through.
