The American Way Story

November 1, 2010 -- Historic GROVETON, VA   
We are pleased to announce the debut of our new website dedicated to the preservation and history of the little known Beacon Field and Beacon Flying Service motor sports racing sponsorship program from 1956 to 1974.   The website is  and includes a short welcome video by Harry Lehman, lots of photographs, history and evolution of the American Way Streamliner.

In the coming months, this Editor will also launch a new web page on the Beacon site that chronicles the abundance of local Groveton competitive racing activity including test runs on the Beacon runways, horse and motorcycle racing at the oval, roadsters at Hybla speedway, and the failed attempts to build a race track where modern day streets Benson, Glassell, and Berkshire are built today.
