I am looking for the location where a auto race track used to be in Horse Cave,Ky. in 1951. They only had 9 races and then the track was closed and i presume destoyed. If anyone knows where the track was located,I would appreciate your help.

Thanks

I spent several years in Horse Cave in the 1950's. The only race track I ever knew about was located in a field, on what used to be Hwy 335, near the present exit for Horse Cave off I-65. If you are going south on I-65 and take the Horse Cave exit, turn left at the end of the ramp and right away you will see an old road turning off to your right. The race track was right there on your right. Hope this helps.

You say they only had 9 races and then the track closed. I was told by somebody who was there (about 1952-55, after it had closed) and he said that they had bleachers for spectators and the bleachers were still there at that time. So, would they go to the trouble and expense to build bleachers and then have only 9 races? I'd be interested in learning more about this track also.
