Green Valley Photo from a 1976 Program

In the above picture there is now a road that cuts through the bottom
area of the parking running left to right.

 

 

 

 

This would be the staging lanes with the bridge to the left but quite a ways over.
The photos were taken about 30 minutes before the thunderstorms set in on
October 1st, 2004

 

 

 

 

Standing on the track roughly where the burnouts would be done.

 

 

 

 

Standing on the staging lanes looking towards the pits.

 

 

 

 

Looking down the track towards the rise in the shutdown area, the hill
is vaguely still there but 2 houses about where the catch nets would be.

Another shot looking down the track, to the right covered in
the trees is Green Valley Elementary located on the property.

 

 

 

 

This would be standing on the track looking at the pit area.

This would be the spectator side parking, the row of houses is now
on the street that ran parallel to the track.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 3 photos of above were taken in 1972 or 73, note the tower
doesn't exist at this time.

Probably 1976 being the AHRA logo is displayed on the bridge.
