Soldier Field

Soldier Field, the site of a multi-purpose sports arena, first had a 1/4 mile dirt oval installed in 1935. Over the next 33 years, at various times it featured board and paved ovals of 3/8 and 1/2 miles, and hosted races for midgets and stock cars. Racing was halted when the Chicago Bears football team relocated to the field, as the race track was removed to allow for additional seating.
