            Expertise on tracks north of Vermont's border is better left to guys like Pascal Cote, M.P. Roy, and the many other "bon hommes" who labor to preserve the history of racing in that province. I just wanted, as the title says, to take a peek at some of the myriad tracks [some mighty and some almost ruts in a field] that sprang up and - in most cases - disappeared from 1949 through the 1970's. Even if I got helpful friends like Roger LaBreche, Cam Gray, Andre Chausse, Norman Morley, and others to pitch in, I couldn't ever pretend to do a comprehensive job; so, just a peek will have to suffice.

AUTODROME LAVAL / RIVERSIDE SPEEDWAY


                I am probably more familiar with the track at Laval than most of the other Quebec tracks; I even went there once. With three Northeast tracks using that name, the Autodrome Laval name was probably less statistically confusing. Riverside sometimes had a NASCAR sanction which allowed it to attract some fairly big names in sportsman racing. I am not going to cover much beyond the 1960's with this track. I can't find any aerial photo of the track, so I am using my favorite photo - it shows these bold guys, watching the races for free from trees. They were a headache for promoters there for years.

AUTODROME MONTREAL / ST. PAUL [ST. PAUL L'ERMITE] SPEEDWAY


                I know little of this track other than its location is called three different things: Repentigny, La Guardeur, and St. Paul L'Ermite. It had only a lifespan of five years - 1967 - 72 according to Pascal Cote's site. At one point it did seem to attract the bigger NASCAR sportsman teams, so it must have been a NASCAR sanction at least for a while. Sometimes running in competition with Riverside, Laval, it had promoters like Andre Beaudry and Albert Emond.

MONTREAL INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY / SPORTSMAN SPEEDWAY de STE EUSTACHE/
CICUIT DEUX MONTAGNES/ AUTODROME QUEBEC


                I spent a lot of time around Northern NASCAR and NASCAR North, which always had their strong Quebec contingents and Quebec track participation. One of those tracks was always called simply "Deux Montagnes". I had no idea then that the venue had two names before that and would have others later. I will touch mostly upon a few early years and when the track had NASCAR LMS cars. The track had an All Star League team in 1973, as did Autodrome Quebec.

NOEL RACEWAY


               The first mention of this track I was aware of was when I received racing photos from the family of prominent 1950's Vermont racer Gordy Owen. While most were shot at local tracks, Gordy had a pair of photos which showed his familiar car and a sign in the background that said "Noel Raceway". My second exposure was when I noticed that Roy Forsyth, one of our local hereos, was photographed at the track in Keene, NH wearing a "Noel Raceway" tee shirt.
              Not having NASCAR connections, it was always a task getting photos or information on Noel [named after its owner and promoter, Roger Noel] and sanctioned by Canada Stock Car Racing [perhaps a takeoff on the NASCAR name]. Thus, we have few photos. It opened in 1953 and raced for only a few seasons.

QUEBEC MODERNE SPEEDWAY


                If my limited skills to read Quebecois do not deceive me, Quebec Moderne was built around 1960 in response to the facts that 1.) the Quebec City area had only one track, and 2.) that track [Autodrome Ste- Therese] did not meet the needs of some of the area drivers. It was dirt and extremely fast. Original owner Omer Briere sold it later on in the decade, and the track lasted for several years under different administrations. Ironically, Jean - Paul Cabana once told me he thought Q Moderne was "too fast". It looks like A. Ste-Therese was later paved, so there must have been considerable competition around Quebec City at that time. Some imte around 1972, the facility seemed to go over to the name Autodrome Quebec. I stop around that time.

                Even Pascal Cote's great Stock Car Quebec site has little on the rustic Ste-Martine Speedway. My good friends, the LaBreche family offered photos that make up almost everything I have on the track in the town of the same name. I have no aerial photo of the venue either. The track began around 1952 and went into the early 1960's; it was a dirt track.

AUTODROME STE - THERESE

 
                Autodrome Ste- Therese made it into a 1960's edition of Cavalcade of Auto Racing, which was basically an Oilzum promo idea that grew to be a great resource for racing photos and information. The photos show it as paved, but an article [in French] I tried to decipher mentioned it as "terre battue", or dirt. At a half mile, it was considered by some as "too fast". It attracted many of the same participants as Quebec Moderne. 1958 - 64 - dirt; 1965 - 71 - pavement.

PISTE DE WATERLOO


                I don't believe that Watereloo is necessarily the first stock car track in Quebec, but is at least one of the first. The few photos I have from Phil Gevry are from 1950, and the Stock Car Quebec site has virtually nothing on the track. It appear that the venue is at an old fairgrounds. There is no aerial photo available.
