Description


Altamont Speedway was a motorsports racetrack located in northern California, west of Tracy. The track opened on July 22, 1966. Altamont contained a variety of different track configurations including a 1/2 mile oval, 1/4 mile oval, 1.1-mile road course, and a figure 8 track, and was the state’s largest oval racetrack north of Los Angeles. The park is well known for its December 6, 1969, hosting of the notorious and ill-fated Altamont Free Concert, featuring Santana, Jefferson Airplane, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and The Rolling Stones. During the Stones’ set, Meredith Hunter, a concert-goer high on methamphetamine and brandishing his revolver, was stabbed to death by a member of the Hells Angels, which had been hired to provide security, in front of the stage as the band played. The death was captured on film and appears in the 1970 documentary Gimme Shelter. After 42 years of racing, the speedway closed in October 2008.

 

Details


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.

Sizing


Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
