Kansas City Speedway Races, July 4, 1923
A panorama of the Kansas City Speedway, a wooden racetrack in operation from 1922-1924 near the present-day Bannister Federal Complex at Bannister Road and Troost Avenue. The entrance to the speedway was located at 91st Street and Holmes Road. The speedway cost $500,000 in 1922 and could host 60,000 people. After two years, it had to be closed as holes in the wooden racetrack became too large to safely race on.
