Manzanita Speedway
Place

A race track in Phoenix, Arizona.

The track was originally a dog racing track in the 1940's.  After losing money on dog racing, on August 25, 1951, a "jalopy" race was held.  Despite a similar race nearby on the same day, it was a sellout crowd.  The race was won by Roe Mounts, who never won another race in his career.

Race car drivers Hank Arnold and Buddy Taylor are among those who lost their lives at the speedway.
