In this Les Steger photo taken this past week, all that remains of both the drag strip and the oval track is now dirt, sad to say.

Old Dominion Speedway meets the bulldozers

After 60 years of great drags and oval racing, Old Dominion Speedway, Manassas, Virginia is no more
May 3, 2014

It was way back in 1952 that Old Dominion Speedway opened it gates to oval track racing. The following year 1953, drag racing was added to this Manassas, Virginia facility. But now, with pressure from the community, all that is now gone. Old Dominion has been the home to the famous Bug-Out for well over thirty years, thanks to Les Steger and crew. But when this facility closed in the fall of 2012, the Bug-Out moved to the Virginia Motorsports Park in North Dinwiddle, Virginia. As scheduled, the Bug-Out will go on this coming May 25 at the Virginia Motorsports Park. But for now, we bid goodbye to a most famous track that has seen countless VWs go down the 1/8th mile. RIP Old Dominion Speedway.
