Good Day.

Does anyone have period photos of this circuit? I've been curious about this circuit for some time as it was designed by John Hugenholtz and it was in use for such a brief period. There just isn't any information on the internet other than a few track maps. Much of the track layout is still there as part of the roads around the Short Mountain Landfill. I visited the site in 2003 and took some photos, but it's left me wondering more what it was like in it's day, especially on the east end. Any info or photos would be greatly appreciated.

Brian, is it possible for you to share your "modern day" photographs with the members?

Mark has linked to them in his post. :)

I'd love to confirm how much of what I photographed was once the actual course layout.
