#HialeahSpeedway

MOST RECENT

Hard to believe that it's been 10 years since I last built a street stock. A small two car garage, pan break, bead roller, welder, bender and the love of @mothden was all I needed. Even with 3000sq ft and 14 cars I'll never forget where I came from, started and who stood by me along the way.

Throw back Thursday, back in the 90's with my little brother Will. We built a metric chassis street stock to run at the now gone but not forgotten Hialeah Speedway. It's just snowballed from there. I miss our C10 in the background, we towed a lot of miles with it lowered on a set of Aero's.

The legendary Hialeah Speedway was one of the most memorable landmarks of our city, on a Saturday night you could hear the roar of the engines from miles away. It was built in 1954 when Hialeah still had plenty of cheap land, even though it was in the middle of nowhere without A/C, full of mosquitos, gators and snakes but “If you build it, they will come” and come they did! In its heyday it was considered one of the most popular and challenging tracks in the country.
These daredevils were not Nascar drivers though, these drivers were tough, they often build their own cars using junkyard parts and raced not for sponsors but for glory. The speedway had a figure 8 (see pic #2), they raced motorcycles and even school busses! 🚌Families made it a ritual to go to the weekly races and drivers came from all across the country to try their skills.
The popularity of stock car racing waned in the 90’s and with the housing boom, the 33 acres lot on which it was located became worth a small fortune (Literally), the owners decided to sell in 05 to developers. Today a Lowe’s Home center, a Target and an Applebee replaced the once glorious track and not much remains of its past except memories and small mural inside the Applebee’s where they celebrate the Speedway’s history. #hialeah🚗

TBT.. Way back! 😂 These were some great times, and I believe this was when my dad and I were helping Bobby Brack out on the engine program. What a driver that guy was!
