Fun Beach Speedway

Fun Beach Speedway owners Hillary and Glenn Trusty pose for a photo with their youngest daughter, Alicia, following a ribbon cutting ceremony Monday, Dec. 10 comemorating the opening of the mini-putt course in Long Beach. The golf course is part of ambitious block makeover that also included the go-cart track and two buildings on the property.

It’s been a year of perpetual improvement for one iconic business leading into downtown Long Beach.

It started with a go-kart track makeover, then a 18-hole mini-golf course, snack bar and corner market followed.

The ambitious undertaking was led by owners Glenn and Hillary Trusty, who were motivated to rehabilitate the Long Beach landmark after a drug raid on the former owner left the future of the track in limbo.

The improvements inspired business owners Kaarina Stotts and Tim Johnson, who now operate the neighboring Neptune Theatre and Tinker Towne Mall.

“With what the (Glenn and Hillary) Trustys have done with their space, it has made us feel like this is going to be a destination area,” Johnson said.
