    There is an issue with the Natives that own the property, its been pretty big news out here. The owner is already looking for a place to build a new facility...The Natives already have delelopment plans to build a mall/shopping center on the property...Like that area needs another effing mall/shopping center

    I've never been, Joe. Is it worth the trip?

    I can do the drive to the "real" Grove (Mechanicsburg) in under 90 minutes, probably in my sleep!

    I just drove by Firebird and went to my old Base,Williams AFB,yesterday Holly hell what the heck happened to the east valley!
    The whole area around the base is houses,malls and shopping centers,wow somebody spent a few bucks.
    The tower at Firebird looks tiny against the back drop of whatever has been built around it.

    Maybe they'll just move Firebird to the old BeeLine site.

    75-80 - 20 mins
    Mason-Dixon - < 1 hour
    Capitol Raceway - < 1 hour
    Old Dominion - < 1 hour
    Cecil County - < 1.5 hours
    Budds Creek - < 2 hours
    Maple Grove - < 2.5 hours
    Richmond - < 2.5 hours
    Atco - 2.5 hours
    Englishtown - 3.5 hours

    I guess there's something to be said for the mid-atlantic after all.

    Jimbo, that is correct. New England Dragway, Winterport - Maine, Oxford Plains - Maine - Napierville QC -

    NY alone has six strips -- Jersey has three

    Yes, it sucks. Famoso is 15 minutes from home for me, and I used to be able to hot-lap it and pull 20+ runs a night on a T&T. Last time I went out there I got three runs in all night. Well, I guess it is better for the track, but I selfishly liked it when it was practically empty.

    It is bewildering to think that I, in Boston Massachusetts have less than half the ride (time-wise) someone in LA does to get to a drag strip. Door to door in a touch over an hour. Bako is a deuce and change from LA. I hope Irwindale is reopened soon. Indications are that it will be in a short while.

    They are dropping like flies. A real shame for the sport.
