Came across this name in a data base while doing research on racing at Crump Stadium.. Said it operated IN MEMPHIS from 1949-1950. Unable to locate any information on this track.

Also found listing for a 1/5 mile oval at Hodges Field which ran from 1937-1939.

Hodges Field is better known as home to the Clarence Saunders Memphis Tigers semi pro football team. It is where they defeated the then undefeated World Champion Green Bay Packers in an unsanctioned game the week after the Packers won the Championship.

Saunders and his team were invited to join the NFL but declined the offer.
