War Bonnet Raceway Park was a short-lived track, active in the late 1960s. It was originally very short (about 1 mile), but was lengthened and hosted a Trans-Am Series race in 1968. When Keystone Lake reservoir was created, the small town of Mannford was moved out of the area to be flooded onto higher ground close to the track, which later succumbed to housing development.
The track opened in 1966, and closed sometime around 1969. America's Speedways gives very different lengths for the track.
