Ontario Motor Speedway ran the inaugural, open wheel California 500 race on September 6, 1970.
A huge crowd of 180,000 saw Jim McElrearth take home the victory with the #14 Coyote.
The 1971 Hot Wheels Ontario Trio set pays homage to this track. The oval layout consists of 32 feet of orange track, 8 joiners, 1 dual-lane Rod Runner with fair start T-bar, two 180 degree dual-lane curves and 2 crossovers.
Today’s race features a purple 2011 Indy car against a teal F1 Racer.
Here’s a lap around the oval.
Here’s how the 30 lap race turned out.
So there you have it. The 1971 Hot Wheels Ontario Trio oval layout.
It’s still fast. Still fun.
