Motocross riders at Indian Dunes, April 1978. Riders unidentified.

Opened in 1970 by The Newhall Land and Farming Co. to compliment its other attractions that put Valencia on the map — a public golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones and a magical amusement park that was under contruction — Indian Dunes was a 600-acre motocross park that featured two motocross tracks ("International" in the front and "Shadow Glen" in back along the Santa Clara River), as well as a flat track and a mini bike track. Frequented by Steve McQueen, it was located west of the new Interstate 5 and south of Highway 126. It closed in February 1985.
