Today I had to go to the south end of San Antonio to pick up some parts and started thinking about the old San Antonio Speedway. I spent countless evenings and weekends there as a teenager(I'm almost fifty now) so it's been along time since I've seen the old track. I remember me and friends sneeking in because we didn't have enough money for beer AND entry fees. Racing under the lights, warm summer breezes, good friends, the smell of race fuel, the roar of engines and tires burning in the pits, man I lived for that shit. Girls were alright, but much rather be sitting on the top row of the bleechers at the round track so we could see both the roundy rounds and Alamo Dragway at the same time. In case you never went... the speedway and drag strip were back to back and sitting on the top gave a beautiful view of both paradises. I saw Big Daddy Don Garlits, Cha Cha Muldowney, Don The Snake Prudome, Connie Colletta and all the other bigs runs down that track. Good Times! Both tracks have been closed for years now and all that is left are ruins. The drag strip is completely covered with grass and the speedway is getting there. I took a few picks to share with you guys. Not much to look at now, but in it's prime... it was a great venue. Brought a tear to my eyes. Hope you enjoy the pics! Thanx for lookin!
