Lakeside Speedway

Lakeside Speedway, located on West 45th and Sheridan Boulevard in Denver, Colorado, was originally built as a baseball park in 1935 by Ben Krasner. It was converted in 1938 into a 1/5 mile dirt oval for midget racing, and was paved in 1939. Stock cars used the circuit from 1950, and the circuit remained in use until 1988, when economic factors and a spectator death caused the circuit to be closed.
