time Irwindale opened in 1957. Now they were in that area so maybe. I think I got something to eat there maybe a couple of times but don't remember any connection. Most of the time didn't have money to eat, since after gas to get there and admission I was usually broke. That was a ways for me from Anaheim since when I didn't have a car that could go on the freeway, had to run all the way up Hwy 39 to Arrow Highway then over to the track.
