Driver Galleries & Merchandise Links below!

Welcome to the GO-TO Danbury Fair / Racearena Site on Facebook or elsewhere on the 'net. We're alive, kicking, active and we got a bit of an edge! This is a group for those who wish to reminisce about old times at the Danbury Fair and the Danbury Fair Speedway's Racearena. Please feel free to post stories and photos, and discuss things of interest to Racearena or Fair fans. And, don't forget to check out the photo galleries or "albums." of all your favorite drivers! You can use the following link or just navigate downward and there is a menu with links to your favorite drivers already in alphabetical order, facebook doesn't do that. I do that. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Racearena/photos/?filter=albums

If everyone could scan pictures from that old worn shoe box they got in the bottom of the closet of their favorite drivers and upload them here for safe keeping before they are gone forever, that would be great! I'mj all out of pictures myself so please, jump in and upload some stuff.

If you have Danbury Fair or Racearena memorabilia like Racearena Revues or 75 foot tall Paul Bunyon statues and want to sell or trade it go ahead and list it here, but please only stuff of interest to Fair or Racearena fans.

The only rule is that there are no rules. But remember, this applies to the moderators too...

Peace & Love & Be Nice.

....and, TELL YOUR FRIENDS!

Thanks.

Driver Photo Galleries, Info & Merchandise Links below!

Welcome to the Danbury Fair / Racearena Facebook Group. This is an open group for those who wish to reminisce about old times at the Danbury Fair and the Danbury Fair Speedway's Racearena. Please feel free to post stories and photos, and discuss things of interest to Racearena or Fair fans. And, don't forget to check out the photo galleries or "albums." of all your favorite drivers! You can use the following link or just navigate downward and there is a menu with links to your favorite drivers already in alphabetical order, facebook doesn't do that. I do that. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Racearena/photos/?filter=albums

If everyone could scan pictures from that old worn shoe box they got in the bottom of the closet of their favorite drivers and upload them here for safe keeping before they are gone forever, that would be great! I'mj all out of pictures myself so please, jump in and upload some stuff.

If you have Danbury Fair or Racearena memorabilia like Racearena Revues or 75 foot tall Paul Bunyon statues and want to sell or trade it go ahead and list it here, but please only stuff of interest to Fair or Racearena fans.

The only rule is that there are no rules. But remember, this applies to the moderators too...

Peace & Love & Be Nice.

....and, TELL YOUR FRIENDS!

Thanks.
