    ...are a mile wide and an inch deep, something folks should remember.
    I figured it would be long dead and lined with apartments on the south side but a quick look at Google Maps shows that it's still wide, flat, clean, and almost all of both sides is industrial or businesses that clear out before dark. Yeah, it could still be a street racing center. In fact, Street View shows some loooong tire marks.

    Google also shows that I lived 5 or 6 blocks away, not 3. :)

    I can't imagine the old days when the empty lots would fill up with spectators and the cops would basically ignore the place will ever come back. But for a small gathering, it looks like it would still work. In fact, the development on the south side might actually redirect some of the noise that used to cause the apartment dwellers to the south to call the police to complain.

    Wow. Memories.
    I never had a car to run; I was just a hanger-on. Luckily, I had a friend with a 455 Buick of some sort who used to stuff me in the passenger seat and scare the crap out of me regularly.

    Oh yeah, I remember - but I never raced there. My big ones were Westheimer and FM1093 West of Hwy 6 (late 90's), Rankin Rd., Pinemont, Brittmore, Center St., Battleground Rd., and a couple times Holmes Rd. Wife spent time with her bro in law down on Spikewood in her youth (early 90's) but that was before my time.

    I have a weird story about being pulled over during a Westheimer race night but it doesn't really go anywhere, so...nvm.

    I have lots of racing stories. None of which are true and/or happened on a private road in Mexico.

    My hobbies have elevated or deteriorated, depend on who one asks. Still into guns and shooting, reloading, carpentry, keeping the dam acreage mowed and rocks picked up, cigars, and beer. That 'bout does it! :green: (pics will probably never be posted!)
