Ghost Track Photos


The photos below show the remains of Hammond River in the early spring of 2004 when Ernie Pothier visited it.

There's not much left on the site. The asphalt has been ripped up but you can clearly see the track configuration and the banking. The only building still standing is the washroom. The grandstands burned down a few years ago and only some charred timbers remain. The area was littered with race tires, parts and pieces of body work. The remains of the pit area are obvious as the fence still stands including signs to mark specific drivers' pit stalls (see photo below). There is also some remains of the front wall and spectator fence.
