Fontana (San Bernardino County), California
Smith, a short-order cook who has lived in the area since the 1940s, said over the years friends of his shared stories about the "Speedway Monster." He couldn't elaborate but said "some oldtimers" told him that back in 1951-52, a crowd of fans at the Fontana Speedway saw, at a distance, what seemed to be a hairy, two-legged giant criss-cross an open field. The criss-crossing creature appeared in the same area "quite a few times" in the early 1950s, according to Smith.
