Photographs from the Ed Esser collection and contributed to Roaming the Raceways by his son Lee Esser and Tim Frost of National Speedway Directory to share in Ed's memory.

The Emmet County Fairgrounds is also known as the Petosky Fairgrounds and the Emmet-Charleoux County Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds is located on the western edge of town on US 31.

There was auto racing at the fairgrounds in 1961, on a traditional 1/4 mile dirt oval.

Racing did not return until 2005, when the popular autocross racing format was tried. It remains on the fairgrounds schedule.

Autocross racing can be on a flat track or a track with small jumps, humps, bumps, or lumps. Whatever you want to call them, you can see them in the top right of this Ed Esser photo.
