Lions Drag Strip Wilmington (Long Beach), California
Lions Drag Strip, Wilmington, California Late 50's, early 60's
I was born and grew up in Long Beach during this same time, my Dad and uncles would take me there. I can still remember the smell of bleach, burning rubber, and nitro methane. I Miss You Dad.

Return to Lions Drag Strip Long Beach California 2008
This is the third year of featuring restored dragsters that have run the
1320' Lions Drag Strip in its hey day... This video, typical of going to a
drag strip, despite John Ewald telling everyone to stand back, you never
get to see much when they display cars this way. Typical of the drag strip,
all the vehicles require too much support, they stand around the car and
block the view.... At the CHRR in Bakersfield, the Cacklefest is blocked by
a bunch of folks standing at the concrete wall on the track blocking the
view to the grand stands as if the concrete barrier wasn't enough....I have
been going to the drags since I was a youngster and it seems the problem is
no one can stay seated for a run and your typical day at the drags to this
day takes on a Jack in the Box atmosphere.... I guess that is the way it
is.....Anyway, the City of Long Beach Chamber of Commerce puts on a nice
event and I hope it continues into the future.
