Mt. Joy Speedway was a dirt quarter mile oval located east of Mt. Pleasant off the PA Turnpike in western PA. I have to dig back through my files but I am sure it was in operation late 1951 into part of 1952.

Today the track is a pond. Take Route 31 east from Mt. Pleasant. Go about 3/4 of a mile and turn to the right onto County Route 2005. Travel a half mile and the pond is on your left. Use these directions and the track is very easy to find on Google earth. Steve Bubb

When People hear of Mt. Joy Speedway they think of the local Mt. Joy but the track was in the western part of the state
