That’s it. Not sure what year Drew moved to the west side of route 33 but in the mid to late 80s they raced every Friday when it was on the east side of hwy. No AMA sanction at that time so no trophy no plaque just cash payback for all classes.

Carlsbad. Friday night Costa Mesa speedway, Saturday am REM at Carlsbad, watch the drags after our moto's, drive 35 minutes home and surf, Sunday sleep in and recover. Great period of time for me.

In 93 the track was pretty much a supercross track. I remember Jeromy Buehl just flying around the track.

Jolly Roger raceway in Kent, WA. Closed and turned into condos long ago. http://jollyrogersmotorcycleclub.com/

The only tracks that are still open appear to either be near another major noise source (dragstrip, airport, railroad, freeway) or be remote enough and have enough land to buffer the track from new residential developments. I can think of one exception where the noise code is a 24-hour average (agricultural zoning) and the track limits riding time to keep the 24-hour average noise down. I wouldn't want someone practicing starts 300' from my home either.

Baja Acres Millington MI and yes it is still running although the owner and D14 are on the outs with each other.

Baja Acres is an amazing facility - probably the best I have ever been to. Owner and D14 on the outs? I didn't know that...everything seemed full tilt boogie at the brawl this year?

Never been so happy with a fifth. I eventually stopped racing the night race and only raced Sunday because it used to get over so late. It was a lot of fun to have to qualify to make the mains on Saturday though. Had lots of good times there over the years and it is kind of bumming that it's not like it was.

The brawl isn't sanctioned by D14.

Baja left D14 after the 2017 season. Joined the GLMX series for 2018. GLMX merged with D14 and Baja decided to do there own thing.

I taught my kids how to ride in a flat, empty dirt lot about 500 yards to your left in that first picture. Of course, this was in 2013, not 1990.

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

It would be Canyon Raceway in Phoenix... Still there, not quite like it was back in the day when an AMA National was held there.

Second would be Saddleback... We all know the story there.

Freddy Vans Cycle Land Pittsburgh Kansas. Later changed to Freddy Vans Cycle Park around 79-80 when the Burke brothers ran it. We had nearly a mile of pvc pipe buried for irragation, 1st track that I know of to water the track thru out the race day. This track also had the 1st forward falling start gate in the early 70s. I still have the 16hp 6inch 300+ pound pump that we used to pump from the old strip mine pits. Closed mid/late 80s. Housing subdivision. mb
