Hales Corners Speedway: 53 Years of Racing Thrills

Presented by Don "The Kid" Walter

The dirt track oval of the Hales Corners Speedway opened in 1950, and crowds thrilled to races by stock and sprint cars for more than a half-century. Speedway driver Don "The Kid" Walter will share stories about the glory days of this legendary track, including reminiscences about other well-known drivers and their cars.




All Hales Corners Historical Society events are free and open to the public. Join us in the Ben Hunt Room on the lower level of the Hales Corners Library at 5885 S. 116th Street in Hales Corners.
