The first ad I could find for the Staunton VA Daily News Leader was on June 19, 1956. On June 29, it mentioned that the North 340 was “Waynesboro’s Newest Next to Eastside Speedway”.

Aerial photos of US 340 north of Waynesboro showed a drive-in adjacent to Eastside Speedway. The drive-in was intact through 1984, and the race track is still there at 134 Al Gore Ln, Waynesboro, VA 22980.

The last movie ad I saw for the “North Drive-In” was in the Oct. 24, 1976 Daily News Leader, offering “The Filthiest Show in Town” and “Hot Times”. An Oct. 29 ad said that the North 340 was closed for the season. By 1990, the Daily News Leader was advertising Sunday flea markets at the “old North 340 Drive-In Theatre”.

A closer address is 1 Al Gore Ln, Waynesboro, VA.

There is no exact address, but this puts it right next to where the drive-in stood. The entrance road did connect to what is now Al Gore Lane.

Today, you can make out the remnants of the ramps and entrance road of the drive-in. Which is now part of a parking area for the Eastside Speedway.
