Harrison County Drag Strip



          The Drag Strip opened in Harrison Co.  Elizabeth, IN on June of 1966. Sunday was race day. Rodger Brown and Vance Fink were the first operators of the track.  Jim Troutman owned the property.

          The first day they opened the track it was a 1/8 mile drag strip. They raced on 1/8 of paved track and the shut down was gravel. There was no tree, Flag only.

          King Speed Shop 4 door Prefect was the track record holder for the first year.

          Later the track installed a hand made Christmas tree.  They hand screwed the bulbs in for the start, and there was a flagman at the finish line to determine the winner.

           In 1967 they paved the entire track.
