Air Base Speedway was an unpaved speedway with 1/2 and 1/4 mile tracks just south of Donaldson Air Force Base (now Donaldson Center Airport) south of Greenville, South Carolina.
This facility is frequently confused with Greenville-Pickens Speedway which was located on the State Fairgrounds.
The track hosted one major NASCAR race shortly before shutting down for good.
The track apparently operated in 1941, then shut down for WWII when all racing was suspended. Post war, it operated from 1946 to 1951.
The track was also known as Textile Speedway and Greenville-Textile Speedway.
