Contra Costa Speedway
photo by George Cooper
Otherwise known as Pacheco, since it was located in Pacheco, California, just at the north edge of Pleasant Hill.
Torn down and run over by the new interstate, progress forced the hardtops to the new facilities at Vallejo in 1961.
We here at Vallejo Hardtops have very little about Pacheco, so if you have something to add, let us know.
Below are a few photos taken at Pacheco between 195? and 1960 submitted by Tommy Thomson, Don Snow, Dennis Agostino, Mike Haney and Lisa Schulze and Rick Perry.
Thanks guys and gal, great photos.

This is a 1959 map showing where the Contra Costa Speedway, aka Pacheco Speedway, was located, just west of the Buchanan Airfield right off Pacheco Blvd in Pacheco. The new freeway went right through that area which is all housing now. Pacheco is about three miles north of Pleasant Hill.
