Silver Spring Speedway

A Little Track That Roared!
Opening in 1954, as one of many speedways in the Central PA "hot bed" of racing, this three-eights mile dirt track soon garnered a reputation as not only the best weekly show on the circuit, but one of the best in the entire country. THE SPRING lost it's lengthy battle against urban sprawl in 2006. But, in this production, memories of the good old "daze" live forever, including moving footage from all six decades of THE SPRING'S existence.
