Roosevelt Raceway was a road course used briefly for a revival of the Vanderbilt Cup races in the late 1930s.
The facility was converted to a harness track and operated for many years, before ultimately being converted into a shopping district.

This track map is a work in progress. There probably will be improvements to it going forward.
