100 Objects: 60. Kokomo Speedway

This year marks 71 years of racing at the Kokomo Speedway on North Davis Road. From sprint cars, to stocks and modified stocks, the track has seen a lot of iconic racers since Albert Miller and John Rose opened the track in 1947. Famed promoter Bill Lipkey purchased the venue from Miller and Rose in 1952 and helped make it one of the most hallowed dirt tracks in the country. It’s now owned by the O’Connor family and continues to provide quality racing.
