Olympic Velodrome (Carson, California)


Olympic Velodrome (Carson, California)

The Olympic Velodrome for the track cycling events at the 1984 Summer Olympics was located on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills in Carson, California. Constructed between 1981 and 1982, the velodrome was sponsored by the American convenience store chain 7-Eleven.

The 333.3 meter long track was demolished in 2003 and replaced by the ADT Event Center (formerly Home Depot Center) in 2004. The ADT center was built to the south of where the Olympic Velodrome was. The Home Depot Center soccer stadium is actually situated where the velodrome once stood.
