Early Wyoming Racing - 1909 - 1919

These images by J.E. Stimson were submitted to First Super Speedway by historian James Fuller. The subject is the blazing fast, four-mile dirt speedway in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This track provided an outstanding venue for record-setting speeds and attracted some of America's most famous drivers, including Barney Oldfield. Nevertheless, the facility was only on the motorsports landscape for a brief time, from 1909 to 1911 when it became apparent the real estate was most lucrative when parceled and sold for the growing city's development.
