This track, a one-and-a-half-mile road course and drag strip, was closed in the early 1970s. Unfortunately, for racing fans and history buffs alike, the park seems destined to be turned into a housing or business park development in coming years. For now, it still remains as a vibrant symbol of Austin’s drag racing past.
