Auto racing and spectators on El Cajon Boulevard looking west toward Park Boulevard in 1912. Possibly, this was the annual two-day race from Los Angeles to Phoenix by way of San Diego that began in 1911. It was established to advertise San Diego as a gateway to the East. The first driver arriving from Los Angeles won a $1,000 prize. Spectators enjoyed the annual event for several years.
