Picture File 72-18Points-t.jpg Points structure. The series champ won $1500. How times change. 12th place was only worth $50.00!!! Picture File 72-19Lineup-t.jpg Trophy Dash and C-main lineup for the Nov. 4 race at Roseville, Ca's All American Speedway. 81 cars qualified, only 58 got to actually race! Picture File 72-20Lineup-t.jpg I attended the race at Roseville's All American Speedway, a tight, no-passing track Note that every race winner came out of the front row. It was just a matter of staying on the bottom, the top was WAY to slick for anyone to pass. Ollie Silva held off the pack to win the A-main.
