A gas station occupies the spot where the track's gateway used to be.

Feb. 8, 1920: The Los Angeles Speedway is about to open at Pico Boulevard and Beverly Drive. The property was sold in 1923 to be subdivided after the February 1924 races. Another Los Angeles Speedway was active in the 1930s next to the municipal airport, and a still another opened at 182nd Street and Vernon Avenue in 1957.
