Default Re: The Ghosts of old race tracks

63 Speedway:

A 1/4 mile, high banked, paved oval in West Plains, Missouri. At this time, very little information is known on this facility. It only ran from 1967 to 1968 as a paved track, word from locals is that it was dirt before, but its unconfirmed, as is the age of the track. Today, the track surface remains, as overflow parking for a church onsite.

Springfield-Ozark Dragway:

A 1/4 mile dragstrip with a wild left hand turn in the shutdown area in Ozark, Missouri. Operated from 1963 until the mid 1970s.Big names such as Garlits and Kalitta competed here. The track is most commonly known for the passing of Lou Cangelose, the owner/driver of the "Missouri Missile" Top Fuel dragster. Today, its a residential street, called Indian Valley Drive.
