Yes, I would like to start a discussion of those days when Williams had the grand track and complex west of Independence. Last I was in the town, years ago, the big barn was still there, but dimenishing in appearance. I had hoped and still hope it is being preserved. The track was still just visable. I have alot of info on that era, the Nancy Hanks race etc. And, the great ones---Axtel and Allerton.
