"Dorsey Speedway"

Dorsey, Md

The track was a 1/4 mile dirt track that ran motorcycles and stock cars from 1951 to1985. There were many AMA Professional races held at Dorsey in the late 60's but most of the cycle racing was of the AMA amateur category. 

The demand for valuable land in the area brought the end to Dorsey as the Myers family sold the track and saw it developed into a warehouse/industrial park. The last race at Dorsey was on Aug 25, 1985.

We want to thank Howard and Sue Chenowith for their huge photo contribution to this album. Both were members of the Eastern Motorcycle Club which sponsored the Dorsey Raceway motorcycle races. Sue and Howard were the keepers of the club photo album from which a great deal of this material originated. We'd also like to thank everyone else who contributed content as well.
