    US 30 Dragstrip video & photos

    I thought this was pretty cool. I used to hear alot about this place from my old neighbor and from a buddy's Dad. Both of them won trophies at US 30. I loved the US 30 commercials as a kid. If you are old enough to have heard of or remember this place, then you are probably old enough to remember or have been at the area just behind Haunted trails (near 79th & Harlem on the East Side of Harlem). That area on Harlem was actually a Drive in Movie Theater, and also doubled as a flea market on weekends; up until the mid 1980's.

    Enjoy the US 30 Dragstrip video/footage http://www.gromak.com/r/r1/index.html

    That was awsome. I know someone was trying to reopen US30 a few years ago but the city of Hobart put a stop to that.

    Yes you can still drive the strip, it is just overgrown with trees and weeds. I live about 2 miles away from there.
