Hurricane Speedway

History: 

Racing had informally been happening here for a number of years before formal racing began with a dirt track in the early 1970's. It didn't last long, however, as Hurricane closed down after only a few years of operation.

Cement Plant and Nearby Race Track

This is really two locations in one, but since they were immediately adjacent to each other, I'd just combine them.

The Cement Plant was the subject of a newspaper article just before I visited. The reporter came to this place, decided it was an eyesore and hangout for drug abusers, and other undesirables, and called for its destruction.

Shortly afterwards, the city was able to locate the current owner and pressure them to demolish the structure.
