Historical Note

The track was built in a cornfield by Frank Funk, opening in 1916. It operated as a 1/2 mile flat, oiled dirt oval through 1921. It operated as a 1/2 mile high banked oval from 1922-1929. The high banked oval was oiled from September 1st, 1929 through May 30th, 1942, and then after WWII from August 14th, 1945 through 1951. NASCAR GN ran on the high-banked oiled oval on October 15th, 1950. The track was paved in 1951 and has operated continuously since, except for 1961 and 2004.
