Elm Ridge

A 1 mile dirt oval based on a horse trotting track in Kansas City. It was used on the 4th July 1908.

Initially built as a one mile horse track in 1904 (when it held a one-off motor-race meeting on the 5th October) between 59th and 63rd Streets in Kansas City (east of Paseo and west of Prospect), Elm Ridge hosted a motor-race on the 4th July 1908, two years after the horse track had closed due to gambling being made illegal. The venue itself disappeared when a golf club was built in 1912 as part of the Blue Hills Country Club. Part of the site has become Daniel Boone's Family Cemetery, and the Metro Shopping Plaza was subsequently built on the rest of the site.
