A little bit of Tracy History: Tracy developed from the mid-19th century construction of Central Pacific Railroad lines running from Sacramento through Stockton and to the San Francisco Bay Area. Tracy is part of the San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland, CA Combined Statistical Area, an extension of the Bay Area. A number of small communities sprang up along these lines at designated station sites, including one named for railroad director Lathrop J. Tracy.
Incorporated in 1911, Tracy grew rapidly and prospered as the center of an agricultural area, even when as larger railroad operations began to decline in the 1950s. Competition with trucking and automobiles resulted in widespread railroad restructuring.
In December 1969, the town of Tracy was the host of the Altamont Free Concert, held at the (now closed) Altamont Raceway Park. An estimated 300,000 people gathered at the speedway infield in an event that was plagued by violence among attendees, many of whom were drunk or drugged. Artists featured included the internationally known Rolling Stones, Santana, Jefferson Airplane, The Flying Burrito Brothers and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
