Step back into the past and see 13 different Old Speedways that many have long since closed. Watch what these tracks were like in their heyday with several Hall of Fame Drivers at the wheel. Visit tracks like Pine Bowl, Greenport, Coxsackie, Burden Lake, Cairo Fairgrounds, Onteora, Route 66, Albany-Saratoga, 1975 Fonda Car Show, Accord, Orange Co. Airport (1960 NASCAR Grand Nationals), Orange Co. Fairgrounds, Lebanon Valley (1987 World of Outlaws). An extensive compulation of 8mm movies and photos will bring you right back to the speedways.

In the Albany-Saratoga section, there is rare footage of Ernie Gahan in-car camera competing in a heat race from the early 1970's. See N.A.S.C.A.R. Grand Nationals race at Orange Co. Airport in 1960 on an odd triangle shape track made of runways. Lebanon Valley segment is flag to flag coverage of the 1987 World of Outlaws feature event announced by Jim King.
Also at the end of some speedway segments, there are current airviews depicting the tracks as it rests quietly today.

Northeast Stock Car Old Timers (N.E.S.O.T.) with over 200 members since 1985 has been an active club keeping the spirit alive with the history of auto racing holding several functions and events throughout the year and celebrates the career of many drivers, crew, and race fans. This DVD was made exclusively for the club in conjuction with Old Speedways.com and is a tribute to Doug Garrison, the club founder, and also is a dedication to all the members.

My grandfather, Gene Bergin, raced in the North East, and I've seen lots of photos, but never got to see real footage of races.  Thanks!
