John Force Holiday Car Show This Weekend

For hot rod fans, this Sunday (12/3/06) is the John Force Holiday Car Show in Yorba Linda benefiting the CHP’s “CHiPs for Kids” toy drive. I’m probably dating myself, but, glancing over the list of “racing personalities” who are slated to make an appearance, the only one I recognized was Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen who began his racing career in 1953 at the Santa Ana Dragstrip in Irvine!
Here’s a quick trivia question – when was the last (legal) automobile race in Orange County?

    Santa Ana dragstrip in Irvine? Boy, you need a geography and history lesson! Start withe the fact that there was no Irvine in 1953, the Santa Ana dragstrip was at what is today John Wayne airport (and the airport is not in Irvine!), and I could go on. Hope the Force event was successful in spite of your reporting blunders —
