- The mural entitled “Ramona Racecar Dragster” by artist Dave Ybarra will be dedicated at Ron’s Tire & Brake, 2560 Main St., Ramona CA 92065 on Saturday, June 2nd, at 10:00 a.m.
- The mural entitled “‘32 Ford Roadster,” revealed by artist Sake on Cruise Night, May 3rd, will be dedicated at Dave’s Auto Truck and RV, 310 13th St., Ramona, CA 92065 following the “Ramona Racecar Dragster” on the same day at 11:30 am.
“Ramona Racecar Dragster” is Dave Ybarra’s first mural for the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project. His previous murals can be viewed in Lakeside, where he lives. This mural memorializes the Ramona Drag Strip that operated in the 1960s as the San Diego Raceway for drag racers next to the Ramona Airport—drawing thousands of participants and viewers.
Saratoga Sake also painted the Ramona “1938 Turkey Day Queen” and “Midget Car Race” and co-painted the “Working in the Vineyard” murals. The artist currently lives in East County with his two children and wife Chef Stacey Poon-Kinney Star of Food Network.
As with all Ramona mural projects, viewers will be challenged to discover the “heart” icons in a “Where’s Waldo” exercise.
