Gunilla and Michael and Pete are on the right track, looking great and grooving on California’s luxe new Ontario Motor Speedway. An easy ride from Los Angeles, OSM is the only speedway in the world to handle all four types of major sanctioned auto racing events — kicks off September 6 with the first California 500; follows up November 21-22 with the first in the World Series of Drag Racing, the National Hot Rod Association Supernationals; and rounds out the annual schedule early in ’71 with a 500-mile stock car race and a Grand Prix sportscar road race.
