New london dragway no more...

The noose tighthens. This was the closest track to me. But has been in decline for a number of years. I dodnt know the politics but housing development has really closed in around the once rural area. And then the University ownership with the rich kids wanting to use the airport on the weekends. Oh well...
Update: Track operator says New London Dragstrip closing due to 'insurance requirements' | Local News | newsadvance.com

I spoke with a spokesman at the small airport in Farmville and asked about using their runway. His response was "no way". Almost like i had insulted him. The next dragway 3 hours to the west is on rocky ground with year to year confusion. And we know how thatll end.

Natural Bridge has an 1/8 mile drag strip. Look it up not to far of a drive. I'm in Lynchburg and it's only about an hr. drive
