Twin Cities Motor Speedway
First planned to be built to the north of St Paul, Twin Cities Motor
Speedway was eventually built in 1915 to the west of Fort Snelling. It was
a 2 mile concrete oval which cost $900,000 to build, yet on the 17th July
1917 it was already hosting its last race. The Twin City Aero Club then
used the flat infield as a landing area, and in 1921 it was renamed
Wold-Chamberlain after two local World War I pilots. It was developed into
Minneapolis and St Paul's International Airport.
