A guy from Michigan by the name of Alan Brown has compiled a list of all the race tracks that ever existed in North America, entitled “The History of American Speedways: Past and Present.” He shows every track that is known to exist but knows he hasn’t made a complete list.
I have tried to help him update his book. I do this by looking through numerous microfilms of newspapers at the University of Georgia. Thanks to their School of Journalism, there are films of papers from throughout this state. So far, I have gone through papers for Macon, Columbus, Athens, Augusta, Gainesville, Albany and other cities.
