Fresno Dragways

Post by Lost Fresno » Wed Oct 03, 2018 10:46 am

A big part of my growing up was sketching dragsters of all things! Rails as they were called was a very popular part of racing back in the day. And what a fantastic place Fresno Dragways was! Located in "Rasin City", it was the place to go if you loved fast cars. And like the ad says, it was dangerious.
