California 500, old timey. Like me.

Sometimes I talk about things that are from the past. People nod at me. "Yeah, I saw that in a movie," they say.

My reference, in honor of my 500th memoir is a speed race that was held at the Ontario Motor Speedway. It was supposed to be like the Indy 500, only here in California, held over Labor Day. Closed around 1980. But it was a big deal in its time. :)

And I'm a native Californian. Lived here all my life, so far. So see....It all fits. :)
