Ghost Track Photos


This how Jackpot Speedway looked in October, 2004.

Like, Model T Speedway, there's very little remaining. Corner 4 and the front straight can be barely seen. The property owner told me that in the early spring, before the grass grows, the track surface is easier to see. The front wall is still there, some of the spectator fence, and most of the grandstands. The grandstands were not dismantled and were left to rot. They've collapsed completely in some places. There's even a speaker still dangling from its pole.

The track is located on private property, on Concession 4, just north of McCullough Lake and very close to the remains of Model T Speedway. The owner is hesitant to show people around but he was kind enough to allow me to look.
