San Jose Speedway
Oakland Speedway 7/16/50. I'm really getting tired hearing that stock car racing began in the south, that's pure BS. Compare the cars that raced at Oakland to the cars that raced in "stock car country".

Stock Car racing was a big attraction in pre-Castro Cuba, that's right Cuba.
I found this wonderful book " From Havana To Miami" published by Rafael Sanchez. The 1st Gand Prix Of Cuba ran on February 28, 1956 with stock cars as a surport class.
Cubans loved auto racing, if not for Castro, what might have been?
The tracks were road courses at first that ran along the ocean and then later on airports.
For some reason the #33 Rambler had lots of pictures, maybe a popular Cuban driver.
