W’ville’s Ocean Speedway Stays 10-23-13 07:00 av
A 3-year extension was passed with an option of 3 more years, to keep Watsonville’s Ocean Speedway. Hundreds turned out at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds last night in support of the track, despite objections over race day noise levels. A neighborhood group called Community Alliance for Fairgrounds Accountability, also known as CAFA, was seeking tighter controls on noise, hours of operation, and number of events at the race track. The board of the 14th District Agricultural Association, the state agency that oversees the fairgrounds and puts on the annual county fair, unanimously approved the vote.
