I raced there during the late 60's. I have several rolls of 8mm movie film of qualifying runs at the raceway. One of the cars were sponsored by Toohey's Auto Parts Company. It's strange to see how short the dragsters were in those days. Just about every Sunday I went to the drags instead of church.
