South Main Speedrome On South Main St. & Eagle Ave.

Hi, 

 

I'm Chris with KTRK-TV, working on a historic photo spread of racing in Houston. Does anyone know where the "South Houston Race Track" was. I found one location called "South Main Speedway", next to "Wells Air Field" off south main, on an old map. I also found an oval, near La Concha, by the Astrodome, on google earth. 

 

Any help would be appreciated, 

 

Thanks, 

Chris

My guess is that might have been the midget car and kart race track across from Buff Stadium in the late 40's and early 50's.  That's kinda near what's officially South Houston.  Search these forums and you can find other posts about old racetracks.
