Ghost Tracks - Nilestown Speedway
1/4 mile paved oval
Located on the north side of Hamilton Road just east of the town of Nilestown, Ontario (east of London)

I discovered these 1956 photos of Nilestown at the Canadian Motorsports Hall of Fame Archives. They were part of a donation by the family of long-time racer Bill Rice. Many of the angles were very similiar to shots that I took of Nilestown in November of 2003 so I thought it would be interesting to compare 1956 to 2003.
