I forgot to mention, I have both movie projectors from the Evergreen Drive-in, that was real close to the Ishpeming Speedway. One can be viewed on this site, in the drive-in section.

I believe this is where a fella named Earl Francis Krause, fell to his death during a parachute jump on July 4th, 1952. He was only 25 years old. He was trying to put on a show for about 4,000 spectators, when he opened his chute too late. Officers stated that he left an indentation in the ground of almost a foot. I would like to see a picture of the race track, and race drivers, where this took place.

I know of a couple of guys that used to race there in the day. Rest in Peace Earl. Amos McCoy.

I had three uncles who raced at this track in the '50s, usually driving flat head Mercs or Fords. There was a drive-in theatre nearby and were both located on M-28 about five miles west of Ishpeming. I may have a picture of the track and if so will send it to you.
