Dale County Dragway Alabama - 1963

[Back to topic list] [Back to 1963 1/2 #824 Topic]

The photo was taken in the mid 1980s at the Dale County Dragway in Newton, Alabama. It is the car that Skip Norman owned and for a while the one he claimed was the original #824. Newton is about 10 miles east of Dothan, Alabama located in the southeastern part of the state. The race track closed around 1990 and never reopened. The Christmas Tree starting (lights) shone in the photo gave clue to the time period since only a handful of the very large tracks started to use the system in 1963 when they were first introduced.
