  • Green Valley Drag Way Yesterday and Today

    Green Valley Drag Way was a famous drag strip here in North Texas (specifically North Richland Hills, just north of Fort Worth). What Lions is to California, Green Valley is to North Texas. There were 3 championships you had to go to and had to win if you wanted to be somebody. One was Lions and a close second was Green Valley. One of the largest purses to win, famous racers from all over the US of A came here to take on the local Texans such as Bobby Langley. Green Valley shut its doors in the early to mid 80's and when I was in High School in the earl to mid 2000's it was spoken of as almost a hushed ghost legend. We all heard about it at my high school, North Richland High, but no one knew where it was. It wasnt until a construction project began and tore down this huge field of trees to build houses that I realized I lived literally right next to Green Valley Drag Way and I passed it daily!

    Here it is today.







    Here it was Yesterday.

          I have another 1500+ Texas drag racing pics but they are unsorted, some from Green Valley, some from SixFlags and Forest Hill and others. I also have grown a collection of over 25,000-30,000+ pictures of racing/drag racing from 50's-70's on this computer but again unsorted.

              Sad that stuff like this is disappearing!
              That awkward moment when you realize it IS your circus and those ARE your monkeys!

                          Not sure what Baylands is, but we also have North Star, Dallas , Kennedale, Yellow Belly, so we've got lots but ones that had the prominence and history of Green Valley? Yellow belly is old but never had that prominence or standing.
