One of the first tracks to try an irrigation system for watering the racing surface. As you might see by the dust, it wasn't working too well.

The system worked better than that picture shows. That was taken during a Sunday afternoon race. By the time the latemodel feature started the dust got pretty bad most of the time. There was plenty of water put down before the races but the sun and all the racing action would pretty much dry it out by the end of the day's racing. It wasn't that much of a problem during the regular friday night races like it was for the sunday daytime shows.

Will you please help me find something as I remember you having many pictures of everywhere there was a race!! Thanks, God bless and we love you
