Greenville Motor Speedway was a 1/2 mile banked dirt oval located southwest of Greenville, Ohio.
The track opened on July 4th, 1930 (White gives 1921 as a construction start, this does not appear to be correct.) It operated through 1942. It reopened after WWII on August 3rd, 1947, operating through 1948, and reopened again on June 17th, 1951, operating to 1952.
A descendant of one of the original partners tells me that her family still owns the property where the remants of the track are located.
