Its 1966 in Wentzville, at a race track known as "Mid America raceway" the second ever Trans-Am race is held, Darts, Alfas, Minis, Corvairs, and all sorts of modified road cars scatter around the track as families cheer on and bold drivers race around the track.
As 1970's hit, bigger crows would gather as they hear the distinct roar of formula Vs coming down the road in the distance, smaller almost bullet-like cars, they look down to see a "hive" of them fly by at three digit speeds, but before they know it the pack has passed the straights and gone.
Soon, racing school would be held as younger drivers could learn what its like to be Mario Andretti, piloting cars up and down the steep country raceway.
Soon, more cars and even bikes would participate with such stars as Paul Newman, as the cars became quicker the track became worse for wear with cracks and bumps appearing.
The tracks final run would be a series of motorcycles in the 1980's when it was forced to close and return to its original incarnation, a drag strip.
For twenty years this drag strip would run numerous cars while the rest of the track remained to rot, sadly the owner of the track would have their daughter pass away and in 2004 the track was sold. The loss of the owners daughter, pressure from local suburbs, and the smoother track in Illinois were all factors.
In 2005, what was once a straighaway had become a series of houses, what were once tight hairpins that turned boys into men became and empty field, waiting for houses which were never made as the oil and gas remanants haulted progress.
The only remaining sign of Mid America are two poles and a blocked rock road, 50 years ago this would be the first thing you'd see when visiting the track with a sign above it.
