Indianola, IA. A progress report on construction of the Greenwood Roadway three-mile sports car race course, 7 1/2 miles southeast of here on U.S. Highway 65, was made at the Shannon Cafe here Thursday night.
In attendance were Jim Kimberly of Chicago, 1956-57 president of the Sports Car Club of America and a member of the board of governors, and another S.C.C.A. official, Ed Walsh of St. Louis, Mo., who in 1962 completed his thirty-fifth year as an auto race driver.
Walsh is said to have entered cars in the Indianapolis 500 from 1938 to 1956.
Grading has been completed on the $300,000 project and the target date for opening is June 1. About 15 percent of the actual work has been finished, with asphalt scheduled to be laid when frost goes out of the ground in the spring, according to officials of Greenwood Roadway, Inc.
