Greyhound Racing at Grand Junction Colorado's Uranium Downs

Did you ever spend an evening at the Greyhound races at Grand Junction's Uranium Downs? I didn't, and I've been hanging out at Uranium Downs since the early 1970s.

Check out this awesome program from July 9, 1957. If the program is any indication, these Greyhound races were a huge deal. Back then, you could acquire one of these programs for $.50 cents at these Grand Junction businesses:

  • LaCourt Hotel at 2nd and Main
  • Mesa Drug Co. at 400 Main
  • City Magazine & Book Shop at 644 Main
  • Campus Drug Store at 1002 North Avenue
  • Christenson's Drug 1620 U.U. Highway 50
