Description

Langhorne! No Man's Land. Book by Spencer Riggs. Langhorne Speedway, also known as the "Big Left Turn," was the world's toughest mile speedway from its inception in 1926 to its demise in 1971. The circular shape crated fast speeds with poor visivility due to the dirt and the unusual shape. Later the track was paved and the record speeds were just too fast for racing. A track where all forms of racing took place: stock cars, modifieds, midgets, big cars/sprint cars, champ cars, and motorcycles. In 1949 it hosted a NASCAR inaugural race in 1949. On the property a 1/4 mile track, a drag strip and a quarter-midget track also held races. World records were set and tragic accidents happened. This book documents the history of this great Speedway. Hard cover, 539 pages, index, photo index, & 881 pictures. Lee Osborne, Kelly Petillo, & Tommy Nicholson are all included in index.
