Riverside Reunion II
The Legends Of Riverside, Reunion II is going to be March 26-28, 2010 held at the Riverside International Auto Museum. This Museum celebrates the history of the raceway.
This years program will honor Carroll Shelby. They have a film festival with films such as, "Le Mans, Winning, The Speed Merchants" and more. I understand last years event was a great success.

Riverside International Raceway opened on September 22, 1957 and was closed on July 2, 1989 due to encroaching residential and commercial development. Southern California lost it's most historic race track at that time.
I'll cover more about Riverside Raceway and it's connections to San Diego in future posts.
