    That was nicely done! Made a few trips down there between 1983 and 88, and it was a unique place for sure.

    Nice Vid. I sure miss the old place, but it is gone, and will most likely never see another race. The best of the best have won and lost there.

    Question

    Too bad Eldora is so far away. Looks like all the racing surface (dirt} is still laying there.
    The thought of Pennsboro's dirt on Eldora's high banks surely entertains the imagination. Thanks for the memories!

    Great video, kudo's to whoever put that together, they did a great job.

    We went to the Dirt Track World Championship one time. It was 1991 and Freddy Smith won his 3rd of 5 DTWC's. To this day I've never been in a restroom that smelled as bad as the one just off turn 1, it would flat gag a maggot off a gut wagon! I've never seen more dilapidated bleachers, which gave way under the weight of one of the biggest race fans I've ever seen and it took 8 guys to carry him down the hill on a back board. I have never been to a more rowdy party thrown the night before the big race with a band and all. And................................WE LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!!

    RIP Pennsboro old girl, you were one special place.

    That was one nice video there. It makes me wish that I would have went there with my buddies a long time ago before it was too late. Even if the racing was as bad as people say, sitting in that special piece of ground that there is no other just like it, on that hillside with all the fall colors in the trees is only something that can be imagined now. Jack Boggs was on that video also. I always rooted against that guy, but since he is not there any more, I realize that this guy was special in the world of DLM racing, and now I miss him sorely. Most of those cars on the video I remember seeing at other tracks.

    NASCAR and Dirt Motors Racin' expert!!!! Fighting the GOOD fight!!! Find the truth. It was Karl Marx who called for a “heavy progressive or graduated income tax” system in order to redistribute the wealth and establish a socialist state. Check out The Blaze on Dish channel 212 or theblaze.com for the truth.

    Default good times

    I live about three minutes from the old girl and drive by her at least twice a day and I always look over at the old place and remember all the good times and good people I've had the pleasure to meet there. So many drivers I watched race there I still watch today and same for a lot of racing fans I see every year at racetracks I attend. The day I forget about thinking of these good times when I pass by the old place will be the day they bury me.


    Thinking about having my wife throw some dirt in my face to hold me over the winter but I can't find anything but mud around here.

    In High school I always wanted to make the trip down there in my old bombed out Cavalier but I was busy playing football when they had their races and I had a drivers license. Then I went to college and had an even worse vehicle and was busy playing rugby, Then after that just in general being to broke to make a road trip to West Virginia... By the time I really had my first chance to go it was gone for good. Oh well, I keep hearing it wasn't all that great from people that were lucky enough to get to go... Sure looked great to me.
