Hialeah Speedway - 51 years of operation - 1954 to 2005 - Photo Gallery



Hialeah Speedway, one of Hialeah's most memorable landmarks, was closed a few weeks after my visit for the last time. My buddies and I used to go there from the late 50's to the mid 60's because of the action on the track and in the stands. I had not been to the speedway since August 1966 when I was home on leave from boot camp, and yet everything seemed familiar despite the passage of time. The roar of the track could be heard all over Hialeah on Saturday evenings and up in Miami Lakes if the winds were right. Unfortunately the track became surrounded by development and the land was too valuable to maintain the acreage as a motor speedway. Hialeah Speedway is now the site of a large Target store and a Lowe's home improvement store with a large parking lot.

Viewers: if you wish to comment, please visit a slightly larger version of this gallery on our Old Miami/Old Hialeah website at http://www.pbase.com/donboyd/memories_hialeahspeedway . Your comments will seen by more Hialeah folks at that site than if you leave your comments here. I have moved all the existing comments to that site because I want more Hialeah folks to see them. Thanks!
