KCTA Drag Strip Front Street - Kansas City

Grandpa John is getting ready to have a big sale of signs he has collected over the last 50 years. It took over 9 hours to photograph them all. Should be an interesting sale.

This sign is from the old drag strip in Kansas City. In the 1970s he found it wadded up in a ball in some brush near where the drag strip entrance was. He drove by there daily on his way to work at Chemagro (which is now Bayer). KCTA was the Kansas City Timing Association. He has some real gems from the area. Here is a link to his upcoming auction on April 14.
