Lake County’s Racing History

Whether behind the handle bars of a bicycle, the wheel of a souped-up car or the flying hooves of a horse, nothing compares to the thrill of the race!

Attracting spectators and participants alike, these tests of speed, endurance and skill played an important role in Lake County’s history. In the Dunn Museum’s Ready, Set, GO! Lake County’s Racing History special exhibition, explore photographs and artifacts of boat races on the Chain O’ Lakes, harness racing at the Lake County Fair, motor racing at Half Day and Waukegan Speedways, runners at 5Ks and the Lake County Races, and more.
