The Pop Culture Road Trip


A mystery in the Arkansas mud…

posted by Chris Epting

Returned home from a road trip to West Memphis, Arkansas recently. We were there to work on landmark #54 in the Hampton Hotel Save-A-Landmark program.

In the ten years the program has been rolling along, we’ve visited many interesting places and met some incredible people. This trip though provided a first for me and the team – an odd mystery in the fertile Arkansas delta where the Riverside International Speedway is located.
We were there to make the classic 1949 dirt track look like new – but we stumbled into something along the way – here’s a piece I wrote for AOL News about it. Thoughts?
In the meantime, remember to visit our site whenever planning a road trip or if you’d like to learn more about the work we’re doing to save landmarks (and how you can get involved). 
We’ll be in D.C. next month for a big Save-A-Landmark event I’ll be writing about shortly – stay tuned and safe travels.

A truly awesome story! The great state of Arkansas needs more coverage!
As Clayton said: “I think there was supposed to be a dirt track, right here, now and always.” Nothing else could explain it better!

Back from the Arctic...
Charlie and I made it back from the Actic and it was more spectacular than we imagined it would be. I've already written an article about it...   "Maybe it was the deep isolation in a blue and white ice world; maybe it was the spectacular nature or a combination of both. Whatever it wa
