Alexandria Winter Spectacular - Any chance at all??
« on: September 23, 2020, 03:40:32 am »
When we lost the great Alexandria Race several years ago there seemed to be just a little ray of hope it could return at some time??

Any news at all??  This was an excellent race and excellent race for me and all the rest of the spectators.  Has to still be one of my all time favorite tracks to watch a race at.

Come on, someone have some good news PLEASE.

    Sorry... my understanding is the town took it down. It got in the way of the hockey moms parking.

    I had heard that as a rumor but if that is the case what a freakin' shame.

    I heard something about the original race site maybe being considered?   I was there but I don't remember much about it.

    It would not be the same for me.

    The dayco race was always on the fairgrounds where they were held most recently.

    There was a race in a bowl-styled track sort of by the Arrowwood resort. The last race there was in 1972 and now there is a building on that track, but when I drive by I can still see the bowl for turns 3 & 4. No chance of a race being held there either. I was at the 1972 race with my dad and two brothers. Will never forget the whole Polaris race team being there and Kim Elmer on a sno-jet won (as I recall) every single race. You were at that race as well?

    If I could ever come across the pictures I know I have pics of the factory Polaris Starfires there.  And I am sure it was 72.
