    Sierra Vista?

    Sierra Vista, absolutely. A Watts-Sierra Vista car is clearly visible on the right.
    The Oak Knoll cars did the local work between El Molino and Sierra Vista, then crossed over at Sierra Vista to the inner track for some speed. The Watts car would run to Indian Village doing the local work on the outside track.
