Volunteer Speedway

The bogie and the landing gear have been removed from this trailer.  It sits, rusting away, near Kingsport Speedway, off John B. Dennis Highway.

Kingsport Speedway dates from 1965, but Volunteer Speedway, in Bulls Gap, had its first race in 1974.

Both are still very much in business.

Clover Fork

This is not an old sign, but it’s a well done mosaic business sign in Evarts KY.  Thought you’d like to see it.

The Clover Fork meets up with Martin’s Fork at Harlan to kick-start the Cumberland River.  The meet-up is north of Harlan now, since everything was rerouted by the Army Corps of Engineers  (finished up in 1989) to relieve Harlan of the occasional inundation.
