The last cars EVER to touch the track happened just a few weeks before it''s demolition. It occured late one night andincluded a '69 cutlass, a '77 el camino, a '70 chevy truck, and a 280z. They had access to the gate key, and all droveonto the track. With headlights on, five cars peeled off several laps before pulling off, going dark, and driving away. Inless than five minutes, El Cajon sherriffs arrived and found absolutely nothing. I was there. I was part of it. There usedto be a video of it, but someone (I won't say who, but his initials are David Evangelou) erased it................. by the way,how would you like to direct your website efforts away from nostalgia and towards San Diego's local racing future? Iknow you probably think it's not possible to have a new paved oval in the county, but I have an idea that might changeyour mind. Fourteen years is long enough!!
On my buisness trips to san Diego a visit to the speedway was a must.As a member of a whelen modified tour race team it was a pleasure to visit Cajon Speedway.I remember one trip more than most.The Grand Americian Modifieds were running and there was a Man & wife team running and they had Troyer Modifieds from NY State.That really amazed me to find those cars running is a Calf.racetrack.The track will sure be missed as we have lost many here on the east coast in the name of progress!Just once i would like to see them tear down a shopping mall and build a speedway!!
