650. Carlsbad Raceway (Carlsbad, CA)

Eventjes verder in Engels ...

Carlsbad Raceway consisted of a 2,95 km circuit, a 1/4 mile Drag Strip, a MX-track and a 1/8 mile 'Dirt' oval.
The circuit made use of the Drag Strip and his return road. Due to safety and configuration issues this circuit was not used very long.
The Drag Strip was actif from 1964 till 2004.
The oval was in operation from 1985 till 1994.

The whole site was destroyed for a business park and road building.

653. Victorville Auto Raceway (Victorville, CA)

Tot vorig jaar (2006) gekend als "Route 66 Speedway".
Het nieuwe management besloot de oval op te knappen en terug te keren naar de oude benaming.

Deze 'Clay' oval is sinds 1964 operationeel, zonder tussenpauze.

655. Silver Dollar Speedway (Chico, CA)

Deze 1/4 mile 'Clay' oval werd gebouwd in 1962 op een site waar tussen 1948 en 1950 een 1/2 mile oval gelegen was.
Mogelijks is op de foto de ligging van de originele oval nog te zien.
