In 1954, a 3/8 mile track was created by using the high banked turns 1 and 2 from the 1/2 mile track and the flat turns 3 and 4 from the 1/4 mile track. Most of the races were then held on the 3/8 mile oval, but the 1/2 mile track was still occasionally used.
After a change in ownership, it was paved in the fall of 1958. It was repaved in 1968. Gordon Johncock won the 1963 track championship and would go on to win the 1973 and 1982 Indy 500 races.
The track surface is relatively intact, and several other artifacts, such as guardrails, remnants of the grandstands, and light poles are still on site.
