Baer Field Speedway
With a new promoter running the program, the speedway reopened for the 2015 season. I stopped here for a quick look in May, and I found that the dirt track was no longer there.

On Street View maps, the coordinates that you see are the location of where the photograph was taken (from the bridge), which is generated automatically from the Google map URL. Coordinates from satellite and aerial photo maps are somewhat accurate for the intended subject.

I'd rather be at a crummy Arizona drag strip in February than to be suffering through a cycle of polar vortices and snow storms. The beauty of an NHRA event is having the freedom to roam the pit area throughout the entire event, so you do not have to be stuck sitting next to oversized fans for the whole day.

Atco Speedway (abandoned)
Many oval tracks in that era and earlier were fairly flat. It was common for races to be held on former horse tracks found at many fairgrounds. Eventually, race cars became faster and NASCAR's banked speedways built in the 50's and 60's became popular, thus banked corners on short tracks became more common. This one reminds me of a small version of Indianapolis. Four right angle turns with short straights.
I'm surprised that this place is still somewhat recognizable after...
