Mystery Fayetteville 1/2m

I have been searching for a 1/2 mile track that ran "sprints" (roadsters?) in 1937. I came across this on a 1951 aerial. This oval lies 1.5 miles due East of the current Fayetteville Motor Speedway dirt track. Does anyone have any info on the track I am looking for?

Like my Daddy always said, "If ya gonna be dumb, Ya gotta be TOUGH!"

Tried searching some old newspapers from 1937 with key words such as Fayetteville, races, sprints, roadsters, etc. But came up with nothing.
