Dozens Attend Reunion of Saugus Speedway Racers

For the past four years, veterans of the old Saugus Speedway have come from all over the country to talk and reminisce about the track, its racers and its crew.

This year’s celebration centered on birthdays for Wild Bill, Sad Sam and Mr. Smith, as well as Ron Hornaday Jr.’s induction into the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

    As a lifelong resident of Saugus and daughter of a former racer at Saugus Speedway I am completely unaware of this “historical” event. The City of Santa Clarita would like to raze the speedway and build something more profitable. Darn the Bonelli family for getting in the way!
