Part 2: While Still a Dirt Track Organization

After the initial 1957 start with the track located at the Connely farm, land was leased from the City of Monroe and the track continued to grow from 1958 until it’s demise in 1977 when the City of Monroe decided to not renew the lease. The gravel under the hill was more valuable to the city than the token lease amount. Hundreds of names are responsible for keeping the track going of those next 56 years, but many of the true work horse names remained the same.

I bet there are many names that have not been heard for awhile, and remember, these are the people behind the scenes.

It ain't about where you're going that's important; it's all about how much fun you have getting there!
