I'm really enjoying these stories from Doc, thanks a lot for sharing Bob!

My only personal experience at Race City (which closed 10 years ago) was when I was a fresh-faced University student in the summer of 2006. I had a summer job for a Calgary-based (3 hours away) company which resulted in my doing training for 2 weeks in Calgary. Part of that training was an advanced driver training, including accident avoidance and vehicle control on gravel. They had us drive through the city onto some gravel roads and to a gravel parking lot where they had cones and a slalom set up, to evaluate our control and teach us some new maneuvers. The parking lot we used was at Race City. That was the one and only time I had been there, sadly. Now the land is a City of Calgary waste management centre.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Snopro, in response to your previous response, I was definitely in North Edmonton, so Speedway Park it is.
Keep those stories coming.

Great stories.
I didn't do much drag racing(at least not on any tracks.) but worked the pits a few time for my older brother.
Keep them coming....
