Gone but certainly not forgotten.  Back in the good old days, DKP hosted a number of Drag Days at the track.  These usually included a nice, casual, cruise down Interstate 5 to Palomar Airport Rd (read high speed hare and hound here) where we would have breakfast at the Denny's Restaurant.  After eating, it was out to the parking lot to remove mufflers and install stingers for the ten mile "drive" to the track...

My wife didn't think too much of the restrooms last time we were there.

The first time I was there was for the US GP of motocross in 1973.  At that time we parked our van on the drag strip.  Everything was pretty clean then.

Thanks Jim and also thanks to Fabs for helping with my crappy scan job...pics are from 1972 I believe.  Wish I'd had a digital camera back then!

Wish I'd have made it there before too late.  I was in Carlsbad last year, and saw Palomar Airport Road.  Wanted to keep going, but the wife wanted lunch!

yeah what's with all those guys and their rude gestures? So much for my impression that DKP 1 was a bunch of clean-cut, polite, goody boys.... Grin

Sarge, thanks for all these great pictures! I always get goosebumps when I see such old stuff. I think these "amateur"-photographs carry a lot of the atmosphere back then (I was born in '72, wrong continent...)

I know that Andi/DFL has a video of the Carlsbad restroom... Shocked

Maybe he can post it here... Roll Eyes

Saludos,
Ole
