I'm looking for short science fiction story I read in the early 1980s in an 8th grade literature text book. It's about a man going up floor by floor in a parking garage looking for a parking spot. He keeps going up and tries in increase his speed every time he goes up another floor. At the end he comes out on a huge freeway or race track, avoids a crash with another car and then starts going back down. It was highly surreal.

    Is there anything fantasy or sci-fi about this story? – FuzzyBoots Oct 15 '15 at 0:25

    @SeanDuggan I'm sure it's a drift racers fantasy to find a race track at the top of a parking garage. Though I think Fast and the Furious already did this. – Firebat Oct 15 '15 at 1:00

    @SeanDuggan It certainly sounds fantastic to me. – user867 Oct 15 '15 at 2:43
