    I know there are some California Central Coast residents and Cal Poly grads here.  This video showing the old Exposition Park race track is great.  I haven't been back to SLO in many years and can't quite place where the track was.   Never heard of it before someone emailed me this video link.

    Cool!  Love old racing films, particularly of long-gone venues! 

    My friends  in Atascadero, Larry and Joyce, live on the site of the former Atascadero Speedway.  You can see the grading for the grandstands from their patio.  Joyce hosts a Facebook page for the Speedway where folks can post their memories, photos, etc.  Oh yeah, Larry is a CalPoly SLO grad (us CalPoly grads called it Slow Poly.  Then again, they called us Cow Piley)

    Vaguely looks like it might be around Los Osos Valley Rd and Foothill but there's nothing left of it out there if it was where I think it was. Spiffy.

    I Googled it and found something that said there are still visible remnants of it out South Street at Meadow Park.  I don't know how old the information I found is and it is likely a shopping center now?  LOTS of changes since the 1920's.  Also, Ralph DePalma evidently set a world speed record at the SLO track.

    Too cool. I remember Exposition Dr off South St, by Meadow Park. I guess that could be South Hill in the background.
    I used to live maybe 1/2 a mile from there or so. Never knew about that. Super cool.

    No shopping center out there yet and doubt there ever will be. If you googlemap it, you can see a relatively new housing track (compared to other houses across the street around the school). The brown part in the park is a new garden that they put in within the last 2 years. I've only wandered around the park a little but don't recall seeing anything that looked out of place for a park. *shrug*
