Nostalgia Night at Albany-Saratoga


I will be displaying my collection of OLD SPEEDWAY PHOTOS of over 30 different tracks this Friday in the grandstands. I will also be playing old movies of the Asphalt days at Albany-Saratoga back from the 1960s. Take a trip back in time and see the ACTION-PACKED footage of the Modified Legends racing on the blacktop. Also I will have a TRIBUTE TO THE ASPHALT YEARS poster of photos of the track . I will also be playing OLD SPEEDWAYS Volume 1 DVD of over 20 different speedways from the Northeast in the 1950s-60s . If you a nostalgia buff, come on out early this Friday night and see some rare classic footage of the history of Auto Racing in our area. Stop by my display and say Hi.

Lost Speedways VI will be held on November 27th at the Saratoga Auto Museum

LOST SPEEDWAYS 2010 FEATURE LINE-UP SET

For racers and fans throughout the Northeast, Thanksgiving means two things: a big meal with the family and that Lost Speedways at the Saratoga Automobile Museum is only two days away.

The event, which takes a look at speedways and speedway surfaces no longer with us as well as great racers of the past, always packs both floors of the museum with enthusiasts sharing their racing memorabilia and enjoying a wide variety of presentations. This year's edition, set for Saturday, November 27th, will continue the tradition with talks on motorcycle racing, road course action and a variety of stock car related topics on the tentative schedule.

Motorcycle enthusiast Mark Supley will return with photos and stories about old-time board track racing while highly respected sports car owner Rob Dyson and Greg Rickes, the voice of Lime Rock Park, will team for Lost Horizons, a comprehensive look at the old Riverside, CA road course and street racing with the Camel GT Series.

The Albany-Saratoga Charger division, from the speedway's first asphalt period, produced a number of successful modified drivers and graduates Brian Ross and Nick Ronca will recall those days using photos supplied by ace photographer John Grady.

The Early Days of Airborne Park will be this year's topic for always popular north-country racing historian Bill Ladabouche while another great story teller, Jim King, will recall the NASCAR-era heroes of the nearby Fonda Speedway. King, who started at Fonda helping with his father's car and ended up spending many seasons in the announcer's booth atop the ancient grandstand, has an endless supply of interesting Fonda tales.

The final presentation, Albany-Saratoga Dirt Track Memories, will use photos from the archives of longtime CVRA photographer Dick Britain to recall the early dirt track years at the Malta oval. Event organizer Ron Hedger, a 32-year columnist with National Speed Sport News, will be joined by color commentator Kenny Tremont Jr, who stands third on the A-S win list and leads all racers with 11 track championships.

Program changes for 2010 include a scheduled intermission halfway through the presentations and a longer period of memorabilia display before the presentations to allow visitors to enjoy the picture books and other racing memorabilia downstairs as well as the formal presentations in the second floor Racing in New York gallery.

Those with memorabilia to share are asked to set up their items for the 11:30 am green flag with the presentations set for 1 pm. There is no charge for the event beyond normal museum admission.

Yes it was great, and it was the largest turn out yet they said. They covered a lot of ground and I found it all very interesting.
