Orange County Drag Races
I got an email this weekend from a reader named Keith that included photos of a couple of trophies he had recently ran across. He noticed the Art Deco Bakelite bases and the detail work in the castings at a local estate sale and just couldn’t resist picking them up. No history came with the trophies, but I have to think these came from the Orange County Airport drag races often called the Santa Anna Drags?
As far as I know, the Santa Ana Dragstrip was the only venue in Orange to race between 1950 until around 1960 or so… It’s odd to me that the location of the actual event isn’t listed on the trophy, but there’s no denying their beauty. Check it out:
Anyone know anything about Barrow Goldberg?
