The only thing rolling down the Packard Test Track now days is dust and debri from bulldozers. Demolition
of the 2.5 mile test track which has seen everything from race cars to Lindbergh to army tanks began in mid-March. It was
known as the worlds fastest speedway from 1928 until 1952 with a record speed of 148 mph. The ashes of Packard
pilot Lionel Woolson are scattered on the infield. Soon it will exist only on film and in the memories of those who drove
it. Its place in history has been duly noted and a small piece will be saved for posterity.
