Susanville Studies Auto Racing Plans
April 1, 1952

The possibility of auto racing at the Fair Grounds was discussed at a meeting of the county fair board and representatives of the 20-30 Club, which is interested in sponsoring the races, and a representative from the American Racing Association.

The matter was taken under advisement until another meeting of the fair board at the end of this month. The county board of supervisors would also have to approve. James Bone and Leo Carman from the 20-30 Club and Al Frager from Reno, representative of the National Racing Association, urged the racing be permitted at the Fair Grounds.
