Ghost Track Photos

This is how Danny's Speedbowl looked in June, 2004 when Ernie Pothier visited it.

The pits were located behind the back straight. As can be seen from the photos, the track is very overgrown with fairly large trees growing through the track surface. Ernie found a lot of car parts in the pit area, some lighting, remains of a pit shack and spectator concessions and possible parts of the grandstand.
