Edgewater is still "the place to race" in the area. They usually even get an NHRA race there in August.

Hey there Mike. You say your best friends dad owned Edgewater? Is there anyway that you can find out what ever happen to all the old photos from back then? My husband won a few races there and they had photos in a glass case of his car. Could you maybe see if there are any photos of back in the 70's still around i would love for my kids to see them. Any help please respond. maybe your friend could make a web page of them . would be really nice.
