While in Maine, the Frozen Foursome stopped by Bentley’s Saloon in Arundel last year. I really wanted to go out to the old speedway, but it is now located on private land. As luck would have it, we found a local who could take us over to the track.
It was really cool to be able to walk around Arundel Speedway, and we all greatly appreciated the tour.
There is not a lot of information readily available on Arundel Speedway when it was in operation. The 1/3 oval, paved track opened in 1964 and closed by 1971, although some sites claim a few races were run up until 1974.
That lack of information is what caused the delay in posting, but as we come onto the year anniversary of our visit to the speedway, I figured I better get this post written.
Some racing has returned to Arundel Speedway in recent years, as restored, vintage racers from local clubs get on its asphalt.
Walking the old track, I was surprised at how good of condition the pavement was.
If you can’t get out to see the old track, Bentley’s Saloon, is still, well worth the trip to Arundel.
