Description
The Windsor Raceway opened October 22, 1965 and closed August 31, 2012.

We had no trouble walking around the grounds and shooting photos. There didn't appear to be any security on the premises, though I'm sure its watched to some degree.

Should be FM, especially with the alarm system & police response.

Silent alarms on all doors. I tried one handle knowing it would be locked, and within 45 minutes there were 2 squad cars there asking me questions. There's still lots to see on the grounds though! love visiting here

They had slots for the last...5 years at least. Then they got rid of them and closed shortly after I think.

Was this Raceway to get slots? If it fell through is that why it is closed?
