August 15 - Opening Night
"This track is a quite unique among American Speedway tracks in that its
not located in a County Fairgrounds. This has significant advantages.
For one, it does not have to
pay an enormous rent every week (usually of the order of $1500 per
week), which so often in the past has been the single item that has
crippled so many tracks. Secondly, any profit from the concession stands
goes to the promoter, not the fairgrounds. Also, a big plus is that they
don't have a curfew by which time they have to finish racing. All this
adds up to an extremely hopeful Speedway opportunity for Northern
California. They offer practice sessions on Tuesday and Thursday
evenings from 5-9 and on Sundays from 10 till 2. It is situated
reasonably close to the large San Francisco Bay population, so there is
the potential to re-build the big Speedway movement that existed in this
area back in the eighties. I heard no complaints from the riders
about the track. Its surface was fairly loose, with plenty of dirt.
There were a number of very close races with plenty of overtaking."
