Rutland Fairgrounds (aka Vermont State Fairgrounds) on the south side of Rutland, Vermont is the site of a 1/2 mile dirt oval which was intermittantly used auto racing.
A recent proposal to revive racing at the Fairgrounds was met with considerable resistance.
The track was used for cars from September 1928 through 1932, September 4th, 1938 through 1939, in 1941, from 1946 through September 6th, 1957, and from September 10th, 1960 through about 1970. AAA big cars ran there in the 1920s and 30s.
