Green Valley was a AHRA track in between Dallas and FT Worth. It always attracted the top cars from both coasts on a regular basis and hosted many AHRA nat'l events. They treated the racers right which back in those days didn't always happen. First time I ever saw a nitro race was at Green Valley because Wally wouldn't allow anything but gas. Plus it was a good surface for that era. By far my favorite. It remained good until it closed in the 80s.Green Valley Raceway
HA! Jeff you should do the cardboard scooter. Alan will never know......My favorite strip to race at is probably Topeka. Smooth as glass, hooks magically in even the hottest conditions, long shut down, huge parking area .... on the downside, not an ideal fan perspective and some downright scary weather at times (never seen more pink on a radar image). Favorite track to be at is probably either Bristol or Vegas .... Bristol is the drag strip Robert Trent Jones would have made if he designed drag strips instead of golf courses, Vegas just wraps a lot of fun scenery, experiences, and racing into one really nice place (unless grass is important to your happiness .... our dogs are not big Vegas fans, and, oh yeah, don't bring you scooter into the grandstands! .... that phrase means Vegas to me .... never did it, but I laugh at the guys getting reprimanded on the PA for it ... and I have this dream of trying to fake Alan out with a cardboard cut out of scooter one day).
