Windsor Raceway Fire – 1975

Happy Friday again everyone… Welcome to October. Today we have a photo on which I have no background information… It’s a photo of the Windsor Raceway Grandstand on fire. The photo is dated March 20 (might be 26), 1975. Credit is given to “Bill Kofender – Windsor Raceway Photographer”.

When I met architect Doug Johnson a few years ago, he mentioned that his firm did some work at Windsor Raceway after a fire…

Does anyone out there remember this event? What caused it, how extensive was it?
