We will never forget the 3 minute clock that stood high above the main grandstand. It was used to warn the teams when the features were going to start. When the last light on the clock went out the announcer (Jack Frazier) would ask the fans “What time is it?” and they would yell “It’s feature time!”.

Other things are the drive-in movie theater out past the 4th turn, the winning driver interviews. And the great food at the concession stands.

But the last thing we will remember is Alan on the grader during intermission making sure the track was at its best for the feature.
