It seems that ALL local drag strips are becoming memory's these days

Back in the 70's I use to race at National Speedway in Long Island and there was A LOT of history there, and then they took it away
The only thing we had left after that was Long Island Motorsports Park (aka Westhampton Dragway). I was blessed to be able to race there right up to 2004 and then they took that away That hurt because it was the longest continuously operating drag strip in the United States, AND NOW WE HAVE NOTHING. Not a got dam track within a hundred miles of me.

And they wonder why crazy old men like me drive around on the street with Race Cars and launch them from every red light
