California State University Northridge Art Galleries is presenting an exhibition titled Kings of Speed: Ascot Raceway 1957 – 1990. The exhibit title says all you need to know. If you don’t “get it” you are either too young or were never into the most dramatic racing that California ever produced. I attended the opening reception and can show you just a little of what is in store for you if you can make it to the exhibit before it closes on October 13, 2018. The photo above is of the first Evel Knievel televised jump (and it happened at Ascot). It only seems fitting that today is the 44-year anniversary of Evel’s attempted jump of the Snake River Canyon.
