  1. My first time at West Capitol was for the 1976 Gold Cup and I drove a car that Jan Opperman set me up with for Jerry Day in the #76 car. The qualifing was done by 20 lap heat races and I ran second in mine and started the A Main Saturday in 17th. and ran third behind Leroy VanConnett and Sammy Swindell and I belive My friend Jimmy Sills was fourth in Duke McMillian’s car,Jack Hewitt was 5th. and Rick Ferkel was there. I came back in 1977with my Dad’s car and didn’t run as well but great memories. Does anyone have any articles or pictures of those Gold Cups ? Thanks Bobby

  2. Hi, I’m looking for copies of photographs of my father, from Sacramento West Capital Raceway dating from probably about 1969 to 1975, Bob Weddle, stock car racing & also the Figure 8 racing. He was also involved in several destruction Derbies and some races in Penn Valley. He passed away in 1975 and due to some unfortunate circumstances our pictures were stolen from out family. I would be ever so grateful to anyone that could provide me with copies. I’d be happy to have them emailed or even posted so I could download them. Thanks!
