This and That…

-Feeling nostalgic? Lets take a look at some prices on the McDonalds Menu in Spring of 1972…50 years ago!

Big Mac: 65 cents – Today: $3.99

French Fries: 26 cents – Today: $1.89

Milkshakes: 35 cents – Today: $2.59

On second thought…maybe I DIDN’T want to know!

-The “Broadway Bullring” also known as Quincy Raceways, will once again operate in 2022. New track manager Jim Lieurance has over 40 years’ experience in racing, and he takes over the property at 8000 Broadway. Quincy Raceways operated uninterrupted from 1975-2019 before ownership issues and the Covid pandemic struck. The raceways were started by the late Albert Scott and family who owned the track up until 2007.
