"Where they raced" dvd just came out, here are a couple of clips

WHERE THEY RACED: Speed Demons in the City of Angels tells the story of a pre-gridlocked Los Angeles... a time ripe with orange groves, movie stars, year-round sunshine and more auto racing and innovation than anywhere else in the world. This documentary film is told with hundreds of vintage photos, lost archival films and revealing interviews that reunite the ghost tracks of Los Angeles with the cars that raced on them to give these fading memories a victory lap.

You will not find a more complete perspective on the historic Southern California racing scene. - AUTOWEEK
