A fairly large mudslide fell onto the former Langley Speedway track inside Campbell Valley Park last Tuesday (Jan. 8).

Metro Vancouver Parks has taped off the area where a chunk of slope, where the speedway’s bleachers once stood, gave way after rain pounded Langley for days.

The mud and bushes actually pushed over the guardrail and now cover a portion of the track.

The Langley Speedway Historic Society maintains the site.

The actual raceway closed down in the 1980s.

It’s not known when or if clean-up will begin.

Metro Parks did not return calls by The Times’ press deadline.
