Many many more. My first event was on the banked oval at Whiteman Stadium. And Orange County Fairgrounds (Costa Mesa), JungleLand, The City, Mile-Square, Pomona Fairgrounds, Irwindale, Dodger Stadium, who can forget Ontario Motor Speedway. Wouldn't surprise me if we haven't overlooked another dozen or more.

That lot is now a housing development. I drove by it in December as the palm trees near the former entrance were just getting cut down.

Actually SCNAX = Southern California National AutoX Club
I was quoting the original acronym. But once they got to 3 Nissan's, they couldn't find anymore and switched it to Sports Car National AutoX Club.

My first event was at Riverside International Raceway.
We also ran events as part of the Palm Springs Vintage Grand Prix. One was at the airport, but I feel like there was another location there too...
The Ford Aerospace facility in Newport Beach.
Angel stadium?
Norton AFB
Pt. Magu
Sheriff's EVOC facility in San Bernardino
Plus we've done promotional events at weird places like the LA Convention Center - I got to drive Bob Bondurant around a course in my dad's X1/9 !

I remember running at Dodger stadium, Orange Co fairgrounds, Terminal island, I don`t remember what it was called, but the lot across from Long beach airport.
Also, OCIR, but I don`t think they were SCCSCC events (bug-in maybe ?)

I have a vague recollection of the lot across from Long beach airport. IIRC it was an aircraft company (maybe servicing?). I only ran there once.

Wasn't JungleLand in the SF Valley? I believe I ran there once, maybe. Well at least I can remember my name :D

Testing my memory here, but I think CSCC was the first or one of the first to have a womens only school. I cant remember all of us that put it together - Gayle might remember who - she, Renee, maybe JoAnne, and I were all involved. It is so cool to see that the school has continued on to this day! This would have been in the early 90s I think.
