Nice cars...nice times! Looks like the place might have closed...late '70's?...based on the equipment on the cars....Why did it close...noise?

[QUOTE=jeffsracing;302975]No pictures of the 1963 Plymouth. Cornhusker opened in fall 1969. Some Cornhusker Drag Record Holders. Still trying to figure out the green Cuda.

Thanks, I guess there was track before this one that had NHRA Division 5 races.

Cornhusker Raceway Park closed due to racer boycott asking for better payouts

Here is a video of the Corvette my dad drove.
He also has about 20 or 30 mins of racing on super 8 with a couple of the Griffiths when they were young and skinny. .
Might even have a few minutes from the weekend everyone loaded up to protest.


Part of the tower and starter's box are restored and in a car collection.

I think he's since sold the car and his kid was thinking of building a clone someday...here's an old shot of it in the pits somewhere.
