Around 1955 I lived in The San Fernando Valley.
I had a 1954 Vellocette 21" single.
I used to ride out to crater camp and Race.
I didn't have money for entry so I wold pull off into the surrounding bushes
and remove my Head light, license plate, and license plate. Attach a paper plate with a number on it.
As a race would come bye I would jump in and race with the rest of the bikes. When we got the white flage I would go off track and wait for the next race. Never got caught. HaHa.

My dad used to talk about racing at Crater Camp. Now it's just a street with some really expensive houses on it.
