    I believe this picture was taken at a little speedway called the Louisiana Speedway, in St. Rose La., about 20 miles north of New Orleans. The track was only open for about 3 years.
    • (Anonymously) (Private)
      5 years 7 months ago
      It was actually open from 1966-1971. It was a NASCAR track from 1966-1968, and had two NASCAR events in 1969. Freddy Fryar, Chuck Arnold, Donnie Simpson & Tommy Martin were the drivers with the most wins at the track. This is a photo of Fryar with the Edward Grady Partin (Jimmy Hoffa fame) owned Ford in 1966, when the track was dirt. It was paved for 1967, but reverted back to dirt in late 1971, just before it closed. Robert melvin

          Is this the same Chuck Arnold that raced in Pensacola in the early 70's. If so he had a black #3 named the ugly duckling that could fly around that half mile track.

            It was actually named "The Ugly One" and sponsored by Giamballuca Construction out of the New Orleans area.

            Chuck drove the 3 car called The Ugly One. It was flat black with a white roof. The car was owned by Tony Giabalucca, and my dad J.W. Bunton was the Crew Chief.

    This is Jackson.  What looks like a railroad track is actually the frontage road.  The railroad track was at Mobile.

      Wow! I can't believe it's Freddy Fryar, my idol. My first race car at Meyer Speedway was #41 and you and I were sponsored by Hekimian foreign car service. I bought your Chevelle that Marty Robbins drove at the Shriner's race at Boyd speedway and helped pit Tony F's car that you drove at Nashville in '74?
