Qualcom Stadium is the site of a temporary 1/8th mile drag course being used by RaceLegal.com. In the past, under the name San Diego Stadium International Raceway, it has been the site of a temporary road course which was used for SCCA events and later a vintage race. The parking lot is used by autocrossers today.

SCCA raced here during the late 60s and possibly the early 70s. The lone vintage race was in 1994. The original name of the facility was San Diego Stadium; the name Jack Murphy Stadium was adapted after the death of local sportswriter Jack Murphy in 1980. The current name of Qualcomm Stadium was adapted after the naming rights were sold in 1997.
Posters for the July 1968 and October 1968 races may be found on this page at Frank Sheff's racing site.
