Originally a horse track (opened in 1895), the first auto races in northern California were held here on November 4th, 1904. Racing continued in following years, but the 1906 races were cancelled due to the earthquake. Racing resumed in 1907 and continued until 1911. In 1912 the Ingleside Terrace housing development was built on the site, and the track was incorporated into the city's street pattern to become Urbano Drive.
