Raceway Park stock Cars 1952
Raceway Park had originally been created as a dog racing track, but in the early 1930s the state of Illinois made dog racing illegal. Harry Malone then led a group promoting the track as a midget car track. Raceway finally opened for competitive racing on September 24, 1938. The winner of the first race was Harry McQuinn, who eventually went on to compete in the Indianapolis 500. The track had changed management many times during the early 1940s. Art Folz and Wally Zale assumed the management position in 1940, but their management reign was cut short when Zale was killed in a car-train wreck in 1942. Then, World War II stopped all racing in America for the time being. Rudy Nichels started promoting the track after the war, but with only limited success. Track was demolished in the early 2000s and is now the site of the Raceway Park Center a shopping center that houses an Ultra Foods, AJ Wright and Aldi Food Store among other businesses
