Records show that speedway racing took place in the Crewe area of Cheshire as early as 1929. At this time Open racing took place and it is known a meeting was held on 22nd August 1930. There was then a long period when little recorded racing took place. However, the British Rail Sports ground witnessed racing again in the late 1960's.
