FOUND 'EM! I mentioned in my post about lost pics and misplaced negs-well,a large bag of negatives were found this past weekend(Thank you,Lord),including U.S. Nationals 1982-5 and Tri-City Dragway in 1974-6. The pics aren't of the abandoned strip,but when it was active. When I get a chance to sort through them,I'll know what I have and then I need to see if they'll still print out and then get 'em posted and then...
I know,sounds lame;wait until you see the pics! I'll try not to keep y'all waiting too long.

Get a film scanner. A lot of flat bed scanners have negative slots built in em. I want to see them!!! I love old race pics!!
