Post by LA Bill »

Will mark the death of Western Canada's Oldest Track founded in 1954
When the Tracks owners widow passed it was in her will that the land be sold.
(I'm personally disappointed it wasn't designated a Historic/heritage site, as a lot of Canadian driver came from here who were the first Canadians to have Firsts in North American Motor Sports Indy/NASCAR)

Future of Western Speedway

Langford's Western Speedway up for sale, but mayor wants racing to continue at site

That's a heartbreaker, Bill. I hate to see so many older tracks lost like that.

Some years ago, the old Reading (Pa.) Fairgrounds Race Track (and indeed all the fairgrounds property) was torn down to build a mall. In the last few months, the mall is mostly being torn down, and there have been quite a few letters to the editor in the newspaper saying "Why don't they build a race track?"
