Baylands Raceway Park was a complex consisting of a 1/4 mile paved dragstrip and a 3/8 mile dirt oval located near Fremont, California.
Thanks to Gregg Schlaman for the physical street address of the track.
The 1/4 mile paved dragstrip operated from 1959 through 1988. A 1/4 mile dirt oval operated from 1974 through 1980. A 1/4 mile dirt oval also operated in 1984 (it is not clear if this is the same oval.) A 3/8 mile paved oval operated from August of 1981 through November of 1988. The track also operated as Fremont Raceway.
The dragstrip was the site of the first 7 second run (7.962) on May 14th, 1960. It also was the site of the first 6 second run (6.99) on April 29th, 1962 (jet dragster).
