The right answer isn’t on the list.
Correct answer would be: “The track closest to your house that your neighbors got closed due to noise.
watch your back Bradenton. 👀
Green Valley Raceway; Ft. Worth, Texas. And of course, the perennial favorite, Lions.

The track opened in 1959 and closed in fall of 1996. In 1959 and 1960 the track hosted the U.S. Nationals.

Ha! I never knew that!
Of all of the 'early years' tracks, US 30 actually *could* come back. The property is intact, although there is a pond/swamp developing just south of the track at around the finish line, that I don't remember being there a few years back. Multiple half-hearted attempts to bring the track back have always failed, although they come up every few years.
Look here on Google Maps:
I figure the US 30 on the list is the Gary, IN track & yea it was a significant Ben Christ owned track. But I argue the real US30 was the one in Thomasville, PA, York US30 Dragway, home of the Super Stock Nationals is equal if not greater in legend.
lol... Englishtown the easy winner based on the results already.
While we're on Google:
Englishtown still looks like it's ready to go with some TLC.
I'd would've liked to seen Orange County in person.
I did; as a young 20-something who grew up racing at Green Valley and local tracks, I'd never been to any of the famed California tracks until I went for a summertime visit - my grandparents lived in Simi Valley - and was treated to one of OCIR's races, Lions and Famoso, thanks to Grandma's neighbor who was a huge drag racing fan. I'll never forget it.
Here's a really interesting piece on the birth and death of OCIR: https://www.nhra.com/news/2008/rise-and-fall-orange-county-int-l-raceway
There is one that every pro that ever traveled visited ----PID Pittsburgh international dragway our re-union annually coming up Feb.6
Good stuff, Two Step! You're lucky to have those memories of being there, wow!
Century 21, I had friends who raced there back in the 80s when it was abandoned but now it is an Amazon warehouse or Continental Divide Raceways, the area where it is was supposed to be "developed" but never was.
