Notes:
  • This was Edenvale airfield reconfigured

  • President was Hugh Green

  • Ran 2 100-mile USAC stock car races in 1956

  • The race on May 19 was won by Johnny Mantz

  • There were no grandstands for the May 19 race - the crowd of 5000 had to stand

  • The July 21 race was won by Marshall Teague who picked up $1400

  • There was an issue with the promoter being able to pay the purse so USAC had to cover the cost

  • There were plans for a 500 mile race later in the year but it never materialized
