Racing sanTana ... (listening to Try A Little Tenderness)

Ondale … I don’t want you vatos to fregarme and get me all wrong and shit … eses … BUTT Prentice Park aqui en sanTana and it’s pinche zoo con todo ... pues ... esta firme por los chavalitos or CHEAP DATES … simon … los LOPS and cheesy lovers aqui a veces usan the pinche zoo as a walk and hold manos cosa … poco romantico … it’s suave … then they kick it anywhere on the sacate … his cabeza on her lap … los dos all barefooted and shit … eating $1 SLICED vendor fruit, napkin included … tambien listening to free musica from the parked cars … enjoying the cool breeze before the breeze hits TUSTIN … it CHEAP but it’s firme … relaxing … makes me all aprendido …

BUTT before this CHEAP DATE COCHINADA … LYON STREET was BROADWAY for us CHICANITOS … Motorcylce Hall of Fame Racer DAVID ALDANA popularized what was sanTana’s only race track … sanTana had a race track for los ninos … simon … por nada, ninos mensos could take their bikes to this track, where the ZOO and its animales cochinos now sit around … shitting everywhere ... there might have been a pinche fee to race your bike … BUTT I wouldn’t have known … chale … we use to cruise alli with EL CHAVALO LARRY, David’s much younger hermanito … simon … their chante was alli by the bike trail on Bishop and Oak … Larry would cruise by and we’d take off POR TODO … simon … independent 7 year old like pinche pulgas … we had to throw our GEMCO bikes over the fence then climb alli at the track BUTT once we were in … it was TODO LOCO … no helment … no gloves … no pads … no park Rangers … it was us, our bikes and (when the ALDANA'S weren't with us) our 7-11 COLA SLURPEES flavored with whiskey ...

The starting line alli en old sanTana’s track started atop a pinche hill … straight down … entonces to the right … ALL OVER … and just as fast as the gig was over … the track came down …

BUTT David was a cool vato … simon … the vato was always testing his motorcycles out aqui … speeding como un pinche menso loco … with his flashy leathers ... before white t-shirts, khakis and oldies … we were exposed to FREAKY and COLORFUL LEATHER OUTFITS … custom made for ALDANA RACING … BUTT we thought the LEATHERS would look firme at the bailes … siempre freaks …
