It was a good spot...lots of trees and a park...Def a fun track too. Right before that got a new owner/operator, the pervious owners/operators (frank&margaret) shut down their other track in marysville...that track could have used some love but it was fun because it had a lot of flat straights, so you could tell who was doing sprints at home..lol

Re: Northern California BMX Track History

Those are the only thing I have left from trophies and medals. I donated all mine back to the local track in the early 90's but I kept the State Race medals.
