Clues?

Clues? We don't need no stinking clues.

This old station is on a straight section of road that for upstate natives was? a drag racing spot, had the 1/4 marked. I even ran my '73 Mach III 500 a few times against Sportys, CB750s and Bonnis. Only got out run by a friend on a Z1 but he had to work for it. Man that was a helluva night.
I digress.

The road has three digits that add up to 18.
A fellow named Roger really liked this road.
Sage advice:Think Halloween Fruit.

Cheers
Steve

Old gas station on 288, out of Marietta, next door to Milliken Enterprise plant.
About here: N 35.02089 W 82.55745
I get no bonus points for brand. Something on the end of the building makes me want to say Sinclair...

Hint: Wikipedia says this location is the second highest mountain in Cherokee county. The tower is visible by thousands of travelers a week.

From what I am seeing on wiki, the second highest mountain doesn't have a tower on it, however, I think I know which one this is. I think I'll go for this one tomorrow.

The tower is visible from the Google Earth aerial image.

Another hint: there is only one way up and down the mountain.
