In answer to: 4/14/2014 - Brian Ferguson There's a a 1/2 mile dirt oval about 3 miles north of the speedway and on the west side of US 23 does anyone know what it was? That is the old horse track at the Arenac County Fairgrounds on the west side of Standish.

Clarence LaLonde owns the track. I'd try calling their trucking company.

For some reason there are two (2) iterations of "Standish Speedway". I posted the following on the other one yesterday and discovered that mine was the only post.

I remember attending Saturday Night Races here in the late '70s. Just one visit though. As I remember, the track was oiled dirt, 1/8th mile or maybe a little longer. I believe that only locals raced here. We had a ton of fun though!

After a little research, it appears to be that Standish Wrecking is located right on the same road and in front of the speedway. So I am assuming that they do own the land...and key word there is assuming. I am not done checking this out. Does anyone know who 'owned' the track before the bank? and when was the last days of this track...were they open this past summer?

that randy i dont know,i herd the bank took it over..but the property might be with the wrecking company..its a shame another great track gone to stupidity..

you know for 100,000 this track could be in good shape..alow coolers and maybe a few venders for concessions.but this track could live again..there was really great racing here.its a sham noone knows how to run a track..i wish i had the money to buy it.renovate and clean out that yard and we would be in business

Well Today Oct.1, 2007 took a little drive over to the speedway and doesn't look good. It actually appears as though the Standish Wrecking may be using it as storage. I walked onto the weedy cracked track and the overall conditions of the entire speeday look bleak. I suppose anything is possible.

Standish had alot of enduro cars there, but now i heard that it has gone to the bank, the person (s) who owned it couldnt afford it. But it was an alright track lots of cracks and man were them seats hard in the stands, nothin but cement.

I hope they make a little come back and race some sundays so cars from other tracks would come and race. I know a few people who used to race there and always wanted me to come race but couldn't on friday. Looks like a fun track and hope to run my late model and street stock on it some day.

Standish will be racing on Friday nights starting the end of May in the year 2006. Come out and enjoy the fast racing of Enduros.

I sure miss the old days when the track was dirt and it drew full fields of street stocks, hobby stocks and super stocks. What shows they put on then!! I was there the night Gary Fedewa brought his sprint car to run a few hot laps during intermission. I dont think that track ever saw anything that fast!

Standish Speedway is now roughly a 1/4 mile asphalt track. It is not fully operational but there are still races held about once a month there. They race enduros, and 4 cylinders mainly.
