Thanks Oz, for the link. It's a shame so many of these old strips are gone, but looking thru the California section brought back so many good memories. Although I only drag raced in Long Island NY, while I was in the Army, I did race my FKE Cart at Riverside, Ontario, and a couple of others around SOCAL. And not to steal the thread, we must not forget Ascot park for MC racing. :smile:@Tobacco Road - our favorite dragstrip of the 60's & 70's was Connecticut Dragway. Sadly, it is long gone. Here's a link of historical drag strip listings by state.
As a kid, I lived 12 miles from Seekonk Speedway, a 1/3 mile oval track that ran stock cars. We never had air conditioning, so on a summer night laying in bed with the windows open I could hear the stock cars. It thought it was great, but I was 12 miles away!
Hey John; You may remember 78-80 Drag strip and Mason Dixon as well. I forget their exact location but I'm sure they were not too far from you. I attended both many times during the day. My drag strip of choice, and the one closest to me, was York US 30 In Thomasville Pa. Just West of York, PA. That closed many years ago but was a great strip during the hay days of the 60's and early 70's.
