    We lost both the cool dirt tracks in OKC and Tulsa. We still have Salina but not much else. I grew up going every Saturday night until it moved to a new locale but eventually it died. My buddy won the track championship one year and moved up to 410 sprints at the new location. Now they run horses at the old fairgrounds track,it is so sad to drive by it now.

    Escanaba and Norway both became paved tracks in the early 70’s. Escanaba shut down in the late 70’s and sat idol for along time. 15-20 years ago they tore up the pavement and opened up another dirt track. It’s now going strong. Norway stayed open the whole time. Norway had a stronger tie with the Milwaukee bunch which raced there a lot.

    We had tracks in Dewey,Enid,Tulsa,OKC,Muskogee and they were all thriving. Some drivers would race OKC and Tulsa in the same weekend. It was quite an era in the 60s and 70s.
