Do any of you guys from Colorado remember the drag strip east of Colorado Springs in the early 60's ? It was east on highway 24 past Sportsman Raceway Park as the highway turned towards the town of Falcon. The story I was given was that it was built in a flood plain and one year it flooded and got covered with sand, that and money problems closed it down. In about 1963 it flooded again and washed the sand off. I remember that in 1964/65 someone would open the gate on Sunday and someone would come up with a flag , from that point it was run what you brung! Every once in awhile a Sheriffs car would pull up and watch from the highway.
