75-80 DRAGWAY In Monrovia, Maryland

Roaring engines and smoke bellows out of two metal beasts waiting for dragway lights to drop from yellow, yellow, yellow, GREEN . . . 75-80 Dragway ran its last race on Sunday, October 30, 2005. The drag strip, tucked among pastures and cornfields near the intersection of Routes 75 and 80 in Monrovia, has been sold to create a 1,600 house development. At the 75-80 Dragway, where what comes after the decimal point means everything and a thousandth of a second can shatter hearts, 45 years seems like forever.
