"US 30 DRAGSTRIP – Gary, Indiana – The famous track was open by 1957, perhaps as early as 1954, in what is now Hobart, Indiana, just east of I-65 on the north side of US 30. Closed in 1984, US 30 was top entertainment for scores of Northwest Indiana and Chicago residents, but now sits overgrown and broken down. In the 1960s, US 30 ran memorable radio ads primarily on WLS Radio in Chicago. An announcer would shout “Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! at the beautiful US 30 Drag Strip,” the announcer would then remind listeners in the same overexcited voice that the US 30 Drag Strip was “Where The Great Ones Run!”. The track was also the site of several major “firsts”. Ron Pellegrini claims to have run the very first “funny car” on the third weekend of May in 1965 at the US 30 Drag Strip. US 30 closed after the 1984 season. This SignPast Vintage sign is handcrafted from 18 gauge steel and finished with durable baked enamel. Measures 21.5" Wide x 28.75" High
