Ghost Track Photos

This is how Hurricane Speedway looked in the summer of 2004. Matt Hansford, who lives in the area, sent these photos to Matt and some friends were bike riding and stumbled across the track one evening. They went back with a camera a few days later.

The front wall and spectator fence are still there. The pits appear to have been behind the back straight. As noted in the captions, it looks like you can still see the entrance from the track to the pits.
