Look no further than the NASCAR Auto Club 400 race which is held at the Auto Club Speedway, formerly called the California Speedway, if you are a petrol head wanting to spend a great weekend following exciting racing action. It's just 50 miles from Hollywood in Fontana, CA and has played host to some of the most popular Hollywood stars.
It's the only race in the country where you can see five cars racing side by side as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series contenders race each other for cup glory. But that's not all! There is a full weekend of racing starting at the beginning of the weekend on Friday leading up to the finale on Sunday.
But racing is not all that's on the cards! There is entertainment for the entire family at the fan zone. Kids can enrol for a Lefty Kids Club membership for free! This gives them the chance to compete in special events and win special prizes. If you get a pre-race pitpass, you can go down the pit lane and catch a glimpse of the work that goes on behind the scenes to compete in these races, to satisfy your technical appetite for the sport.
Hungry? Just head down to the fan zone and satisfy those hunger pangs with choices to sate even the most demanding of kids. Also in the fan zone are sponsors' displays, souvenir shops, and more to keep you busy between races and events. Just don't forget your map at the entrance to make sure you get it all in. There are also pre-race live stage performances from rock bands to get you rocking before the race ahead!
But you are here for the racing action right? And you want to be right in the middle of the action, yes? Rent racing scanners using which you can hear communications between driver and team bosses and pit crew, allowing you to understand every move from your favored team and driver and their decisions and strategies to try to win the race. Nothing gets you a clearer insight into the race as you smell the fumes and watch the cars and drivers take each other on.
The NASCAR Auto Club 400 race is the place to be if you and your family decide to take a mini-staycation in your RV or camper van as you join thousands of fans in the Infield Camping Area and get a unique perspective during the racing weekend. Admissions usually start on the preceeding Thursday before the event, but check before you get there.
