Sacramento Raceway is a complex consisting of a 1/4 mile NHRA dragstrip, a 1/4 mile low banked dirt oval and a motocross track. Some older ovals are visible in the aerial images, but I have little information on them (one appears to be a 1 mile paved oval).
The short-lived Thunder Park Speedway was located across the road from Sacramento Raceway.

The dragstrip opened on May 10th, 1964. A 1/4 mile dirt oval operated in 1990; this appears to be the smaller oval visible above the dragstrip in the aerial imagery. The current 1/3 mile dirt oval opened in 1994. This track has also operated as Central State Raceway and Sacramento Raceway Park.
