Branchdale Speedway??? Not familiar with that one. Where was it located? When did it run? Who were some of the drivers?

Branchdale Speedway ran in the 60s, on sundays. You can not see anything of it today, where it was is on private ground. We do not have much information about the track. There will be someone at the reunion that may have more infomation about. You can not find it from the air or ground.

Anyone with a vintage race car is welcome to bring there car.
We must save the past, so the fans of today do not forget how it all got started. Back when racing was fun not a business.

i scoured penn pilot images of the area but they only had 1958 and 1971. couldn't see anything that looked like a current or deserted track.
