Wouldn't it be cool........

If this actually happened? The original speedway was closed before I was born but judging by some of the stories I've heard and read, it was a really awesome place. https://m.facebook.com/pages/Reading-Fa ... earch&_rdr

This gained some attention last year. It would certainly be nice but the Reading of today differs from the Reading of yesterday.

Currently the mall sits 60 percent empty. From what I understand, the speedway was never 60 percent empty! But, times have changed unfortunately. We can dream though.

I remember being a young lad and eating at the Ground Round at Fairgrounds Square Mall quite a few times. My mom and dad would tell me stories about how the old Reading Speedway used to be here. So I would try to visualize what it could have looked like, but never could quite do it. That picture in the link was pretty neat.

Is that cool looking poster still available? I'm not a face booker or a twitterer.
