The official drag strip of Atlanta, GA isn’t exactly in Atlanta, the venue is located in a small town called Commerce, a little bit over one hour driving, from downtown Atlanta, via I-85 North.
The dragway opened its doors in 1975 and has been hosting the Southern Nationals since 1981. In 1993 it was bought by the National Hot Rod Association.
In October, 2000, my wife and I had the opportunity visit the strip, during the National Muscle Car Association-Power Tour. Over the weekend we took quite a few pictures but keep in mind we used an analog camera.
This is how drag racing was, 20 years ago. I hope you will enjoy.
