    Matt a few pictures from the 60's and 70s, Jeff Smith picnic's at Fountain Hills, Super Skate ( Roger Sharp) and Killer ( Bill Yokam) un-run. Un-Run flyer on the Bobby McGees menu board was created by Larry Virtue, both pieces. 20170414_162558_resized.jpg 20170414_162558_resized.jpg
    Car show was at the exhibit hall at the State Fair Grounds, I believe that Gene Winfield put it on.

    landseaandair, Nice pics. I remember racing my 1967 chevyII out there. I drove from Mesa to Jomax road every weekend. Cool trophy pic. Did they let you have the trophy. There was somebody out there last I I looked around and they gave me a picture of Ward Edwards Pro Mod Camaro. I will take that picture to the Tucson drag race reunion in May. The car was cool. I hope to see you there.

    Mike, Yes, very sad. That track was fast and fun to drive on. My quickest E.T. was out there.

    Currently state trust land but would be nice if someday a car guy could at least get the chance to buy part of the property and preserve the tower and some of the strip instead of a developer leveling the whole site. Track surface is concrete and tower could be stripped back to bare bones and made to look like it's much smaller original design as long as the block walls and foundation survive.

    I can dream can't I.:)
