James Huff, driver of the Pro Stock # 37 at HMP, found a picture of a race track that says it is in Houston, in 1927. Looks like an old Horse racing track. Has an outer track and and inner track. Anyone have a clue of what track it is or where, couldn't have been very many tracks back then. NICK, did you ever go to that track???? hehehe. I will try to take a picture of it and post it. But if anyone has any info, sure would like to hear it.

Probably Bellaire, a half mile dirt oval inside a 1 1/2 mile dirt oval, on Stella Link Road, between Holcomb and Braes Bayou. Operated 1924 to 1935.

Could this be the 1/2 mile out in the Richmond Rosenberg area where they also raced Class C Flattrack motorcycles? I think I was told that it was called Buffaloe Speedway but I cannot verify.
