* Thank You *
I have listed below those who have been so kind to provide me programs, photos and general information.

* Thilo Wunderlich - Thilo hosted my web site from 1999 - 2016. He writes, "I just found an interesting page on your site the Bremen one. I have been visiting races in Bremen since 1976 (I was six years then). Unfortunately they closed down in 1988. I was living next to the stadium, which was about 2 km away from me." I can not thank him enough!

* Rich VanderMeeden - Rich and his daughter have provided a nice box of filled out programs from the 70's and 80's. Rich did start Fast Fridays Speedway at the Auburn track after John Houston moved to Cal Expo.

* Dawn Doron Roll Collection - She writes, "Tough question on the credit issue. I put all the effort and time in, but I know my sisters would be disappointed if I took all the credit, especially Tracy. She's the sister who was daddy's girl and would love to see her name in the spotlight so to speak. She will be incredibly thrilled to see this when I show her!" The donation is "In Memory of Jim Doron #80" shared with love from the collection of his daughters, Tracy, Dawn & Teri." She continues, "I should mention that credit should also go to Ernest Lee Harringtion, son of Mike Capalite. A lot of them came from Mike's collection that Lee sent to me after I discovered them on Ebay and we became Facebook friends." (I have to add that she sent me these programs in 2014, then misplace them or forgot or whatever, but now they are posted.) The programs are added to Costa Mesa, Whiteman, Trojan, Ascot and LA Sports Arena.
