Tulsa Speedway is a well known track in Oklahoma getting it’s roots at near what’s now Fair Meadows horse track. The first track was built at what is now the parking lot for the Fair Meadows simulcast center in the 1930’s. It was originally built as a 1/2 mile track but was later shortened to a 3/8 mile track. Both configurations had a 1/5 mile track inside. The last year for the track in this location was 1973, where it then moved to where Fair Meadows is now. Hugh Finnerty was the original owner (as far back as I can tell, as of 1979). The speedway was relocated to 66th street north off of Highway 75 on the outskirts of Tulsa in 1985 where it still stands today. Once the track moved they started the first sprint car program in 1988.

Starting from a young age, I’ve always loved exploring. I can remember venturing off and scoping out the houses being built in the developing neighborhood right behind my house. As I got older, I found myself appreciating the work and love that went into architecture and just being excited to pass by the beautifully designed places in downtown.
