Circa1950's Remembering Meadowdale Raceways – in Carpentersville, Illinois
Dated: March 12 2021
— Road racing course was located on Route 31 in Carpentersville, two miles north of the I-90 Tollway —
The track had been described in various sizes ranging from 4.2 mile, 3.5 mile, 3.27 mile, and 2.25 mile.
The track opened on September 14, 1958, with Chuck Daigh of Long Beach, Calif., winning a 115.5-mile sports car event on the 12-turn, 3.3 mile course. Daigh, in a Scarab, defeated Lance Reventlow in a “sister” car to Daigh’s. Chuck Rickert in a Porsche 550 finished third, followed by John Haas and John Stover. Daigh averaged 85.55 mph to the checkered flag. Driver Robert Walker of Little Rock, Ark., died from injuries when his Ferrari flipped over in a hairpin turn during the race. The Chicago Region of the Sports Cars Club of America hosted the event with an entry list of some 130 cars on hand as a windy day caused dust problems at the new facility.
The track sat for many years with the property now part of about 122 acres owned in roughly equal portions by Dundee Township, the Dundee Township Park District and the Kane County Forest Preserve and known as Raceway Wood. Parts of the original track remain with visitors able to walk the course where Ferrari, Maserati, Porsches, and Scarab sports cars once reigned.
