Default Vote for Greenwood Raceway

The goal of Greenwood Motorsports is to redevelop the dilapidated Greenwood Roadway and create a motorsports country club for automotive enthusiasts. This motorsports facility would be a local, regional and national level attraction supporting local businesses and promoting Central Iowa.

The original Greenwood Roadway race track was a three-mile sports car racing track located on Hwy 65 south of Indianola in Warren County. It was open from 1963 to 1966. Racing greats including Carroll Shelby, Jim Hall, Al and Bobby Unser, and Ed Leslie raced at Greenwood Roadway. www.greenwoodroadway.com

50 years after sports cars first came to Iowa, a small group of automotive enthusiasts and I hosted the Greenwood Revival event. This event included seminars on the track design from people who were involved in the original site selection and design. There were stories from local residents who were corner workers, spectators and even local drivers who raced there back in the 1960ís. There was an opportunity for all attendees to drive the track in its current dilapidated state and preview cars that raced there as well. The event was attended by hundreds of enthusiasts reliving the past and looking forward to the future. www.greenwoodrevival.com

The $5,000 would fund a race track consultant to conduct a feasibility study of redeveloping the original track alignment with current safety regulations.
