Lions Drag Strip racing park

Lions Drag Strip, an early public racing park designed to give enthusiasts a safe, legal venue. The local Lions Club took the initiative to find a location for young men to race cars safely and legally, away from public roads (note text at lower right of the image). As motocross supplanted drag racing as the new motor sport of the young, Lions added a motocross track. (Source: Brian Thompson)
