1972 ROSEDALE SPEEDWAY
The Rosedale Speedway Association was formed in October of 1971, A group of about thirty people met to form the Association that would build the Rosedale venue, The meeting was held at the existing site of the current track when it was nothing more than a paddock, That Group was headed by Dave Williams and some five months later the venue opened on the 27th of February 1972.
The D shaped track was a 1/3 of a mile and a gravel surface located inside the horse racing track, railway sleepers were used to construct the safety fence, while spectators could veiw the racing from horse racing grandstand.
In 1979 the Association had changed its operations from Sunday afternoons to Saturday nights under lights.
During the mid eighty's a team of local sedan car drivers took on a team of Americans on two occasions, the American team won but the locals were not discrased, also multiple World of Outlaws champion Steve Kinser raced at the venue.
In the early ninetie's the Rosedale Speedway Association embarked on a major upgrade, The timber track fence was replaced with a concrete version, The track was re-shaped to more of an oval and a 4.2 metre catch fence was installed.
