Carroll's Grove Speedway was a 1/5 mile dirt oval located northeast of Troy, NY just off of NY 7.
The track ran for only one year, 1950. America's Speedways dates are a bit uncertain, but Bob Miller is very specific. In 1951, a new NYS blue law forbidding Sunday stock car racing took effect. The law was ruled unfair and antiquated by the NY supreme court but the 1951 Sunday racing season was wiped out statewide. The owner planned to resume racing in 1952 but it never happened.
