This a 1970 shot of the former Montandon jallopy track.  Jallopy racing was real big in the Williamsport region and this was one of the speedways.  This track was on the very west edge of town right across the river from Lewisburg.  Track was open in the late 1940s

Next up is the Queen Speedway that was northeast of Titusville. I understand there are some remains of the track to be found today.  This aerial is from 1969.

This is one of the top tracks from the great DuBois - Clearfield region.  This is a 1969 shot of the Houtzdale Speedway.  Track was southwest of town and today a prison is built on the site

This is the Herb Harvey Speedway.  The track was in the nothern region of Pennsylvania, north of Wilkes Barre.  It was very unique in that it was open in the 1960s and 1970s but was a thow back to the days of the 1950s tracks.  It was a rather fun place.  It is in the town of Lemon and today it is a junkyard.  Photo is from 1967

This is the last for today.  This is the former Greater Johnstown Speedway.  Track was outside of town near the airport and there are remains to be found today.  More tracks to come over the next week or so.

This photo is from 1967 and it is the remains of the old Uniontown Speedway.  I have some real old aerials and I'll look through them to see if I have one of when the track was open.
