Race fans are going to be treated to a double header weekend over Memorial Day. Paul Shafer, Jr will lead the charge of Touring Stars at Jefferson Speedway for the Salute the Troops 100 on Saturday May 25, a race in which the young Indiana pilot recorded his first career Tour win.
Starting life as a quarter mile dirt track, in 1952, with little but cornfields for boundaries, this track has been the home of Saturday night Racers, and fans, for many years. Over the years there have been many improvements. The track was paved, as a small quarter mile, with 6 degree banking at both ends, in 1964. The walls have progressed from cornfields, to guardrails to back-filled reinforced concrete, by 1981. The 1983 season saw the appearance of the tall yellow scoring tower, which served through the 1989 season.
