What did you like best about this site? Lonnie Kaiser was my uncle. Watched several of both Lonnie and Jim Kaiser races between 1964 thru 1971 before work in San Jose and family kept me away. Miss it. Watching Ocean Speedway just is not the same. Last viewed Lonnie racing sprint in Petaluma in 1994.
Least liked? There is an ending and we know city planners are idiots. True virtually everywhere. The Vallejo I grew up in is not easy to relate to anymore.

Any other comments: I came home from serving in Vietnam and learned about Vallejo Speed Way from Carl DelGrosso who did a lot of lettering and pin striping on the hardtops. I think Carl told me he was dating George Acers daughter. George was I think the promotor of the speed way at the time. My partners and I had our C/Gass 39 Chevy coupe at Carls getting pin striping done and lettering Carl sponsored us. He made arrangements for us to use our coupe for the trophy car on Sat nite. We couldn't use it because our slicks didn't have traction on the wet track it would just spin and go side ways. We showed the coupe at the front gate before you went into the grandstands. ''Vallejo Speed Way Rocked'' I miss it with great memories of the best dirt car racing I've ever enjoyed.

I raced the car I bought from Bob for 1 year and built a new one the year we could run the over head V8s.

Any other comments: My dad raced a '55 Ford stock car #102 from 1969-1972 at Vallejo. The pictures brought back a lot of memories and names from back in the day. I went into the Air Force in Nov 1971 and did not get a chance to see any more racing at Vallejo since it closed before I retured to California. Sure miss the number of cars that would show up every Saturday night. I can remember seeing 50- 60 cars in both the modified and stock divisions. I still go to USAC sprints and the Supermodifieds but the crowds are not the same...so few cars show up any more also. Great Site thanks for keeping racing alive.

What did you like best about this site? Great memories. I hope you check out westcapitalraceway.com for the up and coming all american vintage classic ii at the all american speedway in roseville. i heard you guys bought a hardtop and are restoring it, you should bring it out for a static display car, or does it run? I could get on the track as we have 18 hardtops running. For information call Bonnie 707-254-8775 The Okie Bowl Hardtopper will be showing old Vallejo movies in the pits Friday. night. Hope you all can make it. Bonnie

Any other comments: I remember watching all of the Kaiser's race through the years at Vallejo Speedway. Every one of you guys were fun to watch and root for. My only regret was that I was not around between the years of 1968 thru 1972 (war called) to watch any racing and by the time I got back to the states, out of the service, things had already started to change at Vallejo....new cars, new rules...being gone for so long, it was too much of a sudden change for me to take in. I lost some interest in racing at the time and finally the speedway was closed down. My dad took us to the races every single Saturday night from about 1959 thru 1968 (for me), but he continued to go during my absense. I appreciate all of those of you who have contributed their collections of racing at this great speedway, and I look forward to seeing more of them in the future.

Any other comments: Hello Alan and Jim. I found your site on the old "Vallejo Speedway" page. It was really exciting to see the photos of the "Kaiser Boys" during the Vallejo days. My teenage years were enjoyed by watching the Kaiser brothers, Chet Thompson, Larry Damitz, Julian Castro, Rich Govan, and Dave Logan slinging dirt. Speed Reilly and Joe Valente were legends too. My hero was Del Quinn. He opened the door for what I now have been doing for a living for 35 years. My first big sign painting project was lettering his race car in '66. Although all lettering today is done in vinyl I still get an opportunity sometimes to hand letter a race car like in the old days. Del started racing again in '98. With him in Concord and me in Texas we got connected again and I would fly out once a year to watch him race. Del past away in '01 after he raced in a main event in Hanover. He had a massive heart attack after pulling in the pits while still strapped in his seat. The good Lord blessed him with a final ride before he checked out. I still miss him today for he was a great friend to me. I hope all the "Kaiser Brothers" are doing well. Thanks for reminiscing some great times. Good luck to you both and it's great that you are continuing the family racing heritage.

Any other comments: Great Job Guys! Jim, Alan, Iam about your same age. My dad ran a stock car at Vallejo in 1970 and my first wife is the daughter of the late Kieth "Butch" Hanson. It is cool to see that all these years later we are all still involved in racing. I'm the crew chief for the DMS Products WS midget team and my son is the car chief. We have run with you guys alot and I just never put the name back to the Vallejo days. It is really neat to see that racing lives on from generation to generation. Good Luck in 2007. I'll stop by and say Hi sometime.

Any other comments: Thank you for doing this web site, I have looked at it numerous times. I hope to get out to some of your races this year now that I have weekends off. Maybe it would be possible to make a section with all the son's and daughters, nieces and nephew's racing pictures to. Just to show how deep the racing has gone in our family.
