        Yes - I remember the bread before dinner - so good!

            The little white house in the middle of the grass parking lot west of Georgetown Rd (Lot 2?). I noticed this year it had been torn down. Perhaps this happened a couple years ago and I hadn't noticed 'til now. I'm sure it had an interesting history.

              I believe we once had a fun discussion about that house and its origins. Belonged to the family that parked cars on that land for decades. It was still there just a few years ago - but we didn't venture that far down Georgetown this year.

                The Prest-O-Lite factory and smokestack. And I've only seen it in pictures. I think Donald Davidson misses it, too.

                  The night before the ‘79 500 my buddy and I (along with numerous other “Up all nighters”) waited out the rain under the bridge on 16th St. where Dry Run Creek exits the track.
                  Was hardly any vegetation around it at all back then.
                  I took a quick look this year and it looks like you’d have to hack your way in.
                  Not that I plan on spending another night there.
