San Jose Speedway Poster/Print/Greeting Card

  • $5.00

Most people don’t even know San Jose had a race track. San Jose Speedway can trace its origins to an oval dirt track on the outskirts of town where people flocked to see stock car races. The grandstands burned down there but San Jose Speedway returned in the form of a paved track near the Reid_hillview airport. The track closed, eventually making way for Eastridge Shopping center. It resurfaced in a form at the Fairgrounds but that track closed in 1999.

This is a reproduction of one of the shirts made popular by the track in the Fairgrounds years we believe. It is actually a sort of clip-art master class as every element in this design could be found in clipart books of the day. It also is an example of when something is greater than the sum of its parts.

We redrew this image from an old shirt and are now putting it in our vintage San Jose collection and making it available as a poster/print and card whic is printed in-house on our own digital presses.
