Jungle Park Speedway
A roughly circular part dirt, part paved and partially banked 1/2 mile
circuit built by Earl Padgett 1925-26 (the first race was held on the 4th
July 1926) at Turkey Run alongside US41, 9 miles
north of Rockville. A 1/4 mile dirt oval for midgets was added in the 1940s.
Racing continued until 1963, when a spectator was killed by an out of control
car, the lack of fencing showing itself up.
