Like a scary sequel to your favorite horror flick, we're back with another edition of ghost tracks. Every serious drag fan, of course, had a favorite haunt in his or her formative years, and many of them have passed away, leading to the sport that's sweeping the sport: ghost-track hunting. And, naturally, the leaders in this field of haunt hunting are readers of this column, who have been so kind as to share their finds with us. To this day, the land has not been developed, and there is still some asphalt left to be seen. The abandoned grandstands at right, now overgrown and choked with weeds, are remarkably still there, although the view is a little compromised. Weed whacker, anyone?

The prevailing attitude is that dragstrips and other racetracks were driven away primarily as a result of urban development. As I began to show last month, it just ain't so. In my search for the locations of former SoCal strips, I was astounded to find, in approximately nine out of ten cases, that the settings were still bare, vacant land or-as in the case of Ramona-the former track is still right there, with weeds growing through it. In fact, this seems to be the case nationwide.
