From the 1950s through 1981, the place to be on Saturday night was the Danbury Racearena which was part of the Great Danbury State Fair. It all began in 1869 with the introduction of horse racing. Over its history, the track and Racearena would feature racing of all kinds, including Midget auto racing, motorcycles, speedboats, and in the latter days, stock and Modified stock cars.
