I always hear rumors of new drag strips being built. Remember drag city? Even after they said it'd not be made I heard people get excited for it

Is it just North of the 60? It is what Market turns into.
Main turns into Riverside Ave. We used to street race on Riverside Ave just south of the Farmer Boys in the 70's and early 80's. We parked in the driveway for the Animal Farm out there. It was weird hearing Lions roar at night out there.

Drag City in Banning has been a joke for 20 yrs. Drag City was just the latest name put to it.

It's all about the "Money" and that it :yes: What i mean by that is How much money do you think the county would make on taxes from a Race Track ?? Not much:no: Now on that same land how many houses do you think the county can CRAM on to same land @ 1.5% property tax and other perks of $400.000 +:rolleyes: This is the same reason Brother Hood Raceway in Terminal Island will NEVER happen again :no: Show me the Money:yes:

I was there more than a few years ago. There was nothing out there at that time. We would start about a 1/4 mile back from the bridge that cross's the river. On Riverside Drive.
