Peace Haven Speedway Map And History
Peace Haven Speedway Map And History
This is a 1958 Polyconic projection street map of Winston-Salem, NC showing Peace Haven Speedway. The speedway started out in the pre WWII 40's as a TT motorcycle track organized and built by racing enthusiasts in the local Twin City Ramblers Motorcycle Club. Wade Beauchamp, President of the Twin City Ramblers, with other members started clearing the land and breaking ground on the miles of winding trails of the TT track about 1940. The track had hill climbs, twists & turns, creek crossings, small jumps, and a large oval for the big Harley-Davidson race bikes. Early on, the track was known as Lynhaven, Old Peace Haven Lake, or Peace Haven Park Race Track. After the War, motorcycles returned to the track in the Spring of 1946. Soon after, a half-mile banked oval track was constructed to host both motorcycles and automobiles. In August of that year AAA Midget Car racing was added to the bill at the new oval. The track continued in 1947 with motorcycles and AAA Midget Cars and became known as Peace Haven Speedway. In early '48 the whole track and grounds were updated again, and grandstands for 5000 were added to accommodate large events for both stock car and motorcycle racing. The newly renovated track, discribed as the State's fastest, opened under the name 'Winston-Salem Speedway' at 2:00pm on Monday July 5, 1948 for it's very first "Outlaw" (track rules) Stock Car race. The legendary Curtis Turner won that first race averaging over 70 mph in the main event. Turner later told reporter Jim Foster - "This Winston track is the best in the Country". NASCAR was formed in early 1948 and had it's very first Championship season that year stopping at Peace Haven for the 51st of 52 races on Oct. 31st, with Fonty Flock setting a new NASCAR half-mile qualifying record at 25.15 seconds, and then beating out Red Byron and Bill Blair for the win. Red Byron went on to claim that first NASCAR Championship in the final race on Nov. 14th in Columbus, GA. NASCAR's Bill France and Alvin Hawkins, along with track owners A.D. Burke, Wade Beauchamp, Gene Sparks, R.G. Reynolds, Carl Beauchamp, O.F. Trivette, Clyde Beauchamp, Herbert Reynolds, and their "Winston-Salem Speedway, Inc." promoted and ran the races, with attendance sometimes reaching over 7000 spectators at some of the events throughout the years. In 1951 the name of the track was changed back to "Peace Haven Speedway" of the early motorcycle and midget car days. By 1952, except for a few special events each year such as the annual Easter Monday race and a Fall race for the NASCAR Sportsman & Amateur divisions, most of the stock car racing in Winston-Salem was taking place at Bowman Gray Stadium where racing was weekly from May thru August. The last NASCAR sanctioned events at the track were held in 1956 with Billy Myers beating out Ted Swaim in the Sportsman feature, and Norman Vaden winning the Amateur feature. After 1956, Peace Haven was used primarily for Flying Twins MC motorcycle events, local amateur car races, and neighborhood kids having fun on their dirt bikes. Micro Midget cars were raced on a smaller track carved out on the front stretch and infield for a year or so after the big track was no longer used. All organized racing was gone by 1959 and nature took back the land until it was bought and developed into a neighborhood named "Peace Haven Estates" in the early 60's by developer W. Bryan White. Parts of the old overgrown racetrack were still visible all the way up until 1971 when a road and houses were finally built on top of it's remains as the neighborhood was completed. The speedway was off of Peace Haven Road, accessed by Lynhaven Drive (shown on map but not labeled). Note in the map the outline of the track and it's back stretch right up against Silas Creek, and that at this time Tiffany Avenue started from Country Club Road and crossed the creek a few dozen yards but didn't connect to Peace Haven Road. Also, west Country Club Road was known then as Lewisville Road or Highway. Today, Flyntvalley Court occupies the approximate site of Peace Haven Speedway, now known as a 'Ghost Track'. You can still see the tall earth bank where spectators would stand that wrapped around 'turn one', right behind the houses circling the southwestern culdesac. Some residences have had trouble over the years getting grass to grow in areas where the track, infield, and entrance used to lay. Take a look at Google Satellite and you can just about make out the shape of the track in a line of older trees that circle the backyards of Flyntvalley Court and the last few houses of Burkeridge Court. About all of the early legends of NASCAR and the American Motorcycle Association raced the track at one time or another during it's nearly two decades of existence. Many exciting times and wonderful memories of the greatest days of racing were had at the old ghost track off Peace Haven Road. Rest in peace,
