AND, AT NO. 50:
Farmer’s Field in downtown L.A.
Los Angeles Football Stadium at Grand Crossing in City of Industry
Hacienda Stadium in Carson
Raiders Stadium in Irwindale
Hollywood Park Stadium at Inglewood:
Isn’t Hollywood is all about pretending? There was a time when Al Davis used to jangle the keys to Hollywood Park’s future, supposedly negotiating a 65,000-seat space with 150 luxury boxes at a price tag of about $200 million about 20 years ago.
It never happened. If it did, maybe we’d decide that Hollywood Park, the race track, was stepping aside for something better. But just like all the others on this mini-list, it seems as if all the talk generated around it possibly being built makes it feel as if it’s already come and gone.
If the list is pushed toward 100, include these
= Los Alamitos Race Track
= John Elway Stadium/Granada Hills High
= Washington Park/Chutes Park
= Olympic Velodrome/Cal State Dominguez Hills
= VELO Sports Center/Carson
= Encino Velodrome
= Santa Monica College track
= Raiders team headquarters/El Segundo
= Saugus Speedway
= The Matadome/Northridge
= Riverside International Raceway
= PGA West at La Quinta
= Wilshire Country Club
= Al Houghton Stadium/San Bernardino
