Collierville Dragway

Although named after Collierville, a Memphis area suburb, the dragstrip was actually located in Marshall County, Mississippi about a mile past the state line.  It backs up within feet of Highway 72.  Click the satellite photo for a full size view that points out the dragstrip.

Collierville Dragway Not being a native to this region, I really don't know the history of this old track.  I can say for sure that for the last decade, no doubt much longer, the track has been used as a junk yard.

The only horsepower around here would be the three seen grazing on the right side of the track.

 

Hmmm.  That decrepit building certainly appears to be a remnant of the racing facility.

Anyone out there have tales or information about this old track?
