I loved this track- I nearly lived here every weekend. Very modern for it's day.

And then it all ended.  :(










Parking lot is where staging lanes used to be.



The old San Canyon entrance a few years ago. I think it's gone now.

Not many drivers sneaked up on the tree back then, if my memory is not too foggy, most hopped it to the line, but the tires were so hard, they never cooled like the soft sticky' s they have now.

Here's a couple of 'Crazy Ray' Sylvester's car in the lanes. he bought the car (formerly the Maciel Bros./Maciel & Fantore camaro driven by Gary Henderson) from my dad, and repainted the camaro body. after that body body burned, he went to the mustang. it was a Ken Cox Chassis with a J&E body and a blown Chevy. Ray ran the car as a funny and then as an injected hemi (the Chevy Hunter) and then his daughter took over the wheel when she was old enough. they retired the car after it got bent up a little before palmdale closed. My dad just found some pics of the car in the pits in original paint but i need to scan them
