In the summer of 1966 I operated the Ice Cube drive-in restaurant, located on the main highway and just north of the truck stop. I think I may have been the last one to operate it, not sure. In any event we did a nice business until Labor Day and then it went way down.
At the time Pleasant Lake had a thriving truck stop, another gas station or two, a grocery store in the main part of town and a hardware.
Looking back it may have been a mistake to stop Howard Bice from building the race track in Pleasant Lake because that would have brought a lot of drivers and fans into town to spend money.
