The final performance ever at the New York State Fair grandstand was a perfectly executed liberal demolition Saturday afternoon. Governor Andrew Cuomo threw the switch to start the process of setting off explosives that brought down the aging grandstand in less than a minute.

Memories of years of Super Dirt Week at the facility were be on the minds of hundreds of racing fans in attendance during Saturday's implosion.

Dirt racing at the State Fairgrounds has a special appeal to it, most notably its rare mile long racetrack, but alas another race track bites the dust in the name of progress.
