Race Tracks On Fannin St.

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

I was looking at 1957 pictures of the Arrowhead Speedway located on Old Spanish Trail when I noticed a pair of oval tracks just open the road on Fannin Street.  The 2 tracks are different sizes. Looks like one could be a race course and the other a test track? Or one is a fun Go-Kart track?

I wonder if the Arrowhead Speedway needed extra track space and decided to build more?

This could be related to horses. This might be apart of a stables?

I don't think this was apart of the Murel Goodell's Monorail, Inc. test line? That would have been in a straight line?
