The Danbury Racearena was a paved 1/3 mile oval track and you had to arrive at the track early to be guaranteed a seat because it wasn't unusual for attendance to reach between 7,000 to 10,000 race fans. Don LaJoie was a 9-time track champ and was voted the most popular driver 6 times.
The late Paul Baker, the Racearena's track announcer for 24 years told the News Times back in September of 2012, "It was the greatest sports event in Danbury's history!" I know that many would agree.
