    HEY BILLY IT WAS GREAT BACK THEN . DO YOU REMEMBER BOBBY DELSO’S MG WITH THE SMALL BLOCK AND SIX DEUCES, HE ALLWAYS RACED AT CONNER ST. EVERYONE MET AT THE CASTLE BACK IN 69. I HAD A BLACK HEMI GTX THAT I BOUGHT FROM FRANK GIORDANO AT ATLAS CHRYSLER ON TREMONT AVE. WE ALSO RACED AT THE CONNECTING HIGHWAY ALSO THE AIRPORT DINER. I THINK ONE OF THE CLUBS WAS BEACH AVE DRAG TEAM MIGHT HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN FREEDOMLAND’S TRACK.

    quote Billy Casey:

    Yes I remember Freedom Land. It was only open for a few years. During the winter months there was drag racing in the parking lot. I believe it was run by the local car clubs and the NYPD to try to stop street racing, which believe me was big back then. It only lasted two winters I think. Most of the street racing in that area was on Conner Street and the big hang out and meeting place was the White Castle on Alerton Ave. in the Bronx. I can go on and on and on. 😛 😛 😛 Billy
