Default Auto Club Dragway Event Shutdown - Alternatives?

Hello All,

Wanted to take the ISF for some quarter mile runs only to find out that Auto Club Dragway event in Fontana, CA has been shutdown indefinitely due to some noise complaints.

Just wondering if anyone have suggestions to alternatives within the Southern CA vicinity? For quarter mile runs and possibly "beginner" HPDE?

Thanks for anyones input.

Auto Club Dragway News
  • A Superior Court has suspended operation of the Auto Club Dragway. The suspension results from a successful challenge of a San Bernardino County sound standard by a group of concerned residents. San Bernardino County officials had approved an amendment to the County Sound Standard in 2010 to accommodate louder sound arising from races at the Dragway. The Superior Court found that the underlying Environmental Impact Report which the County relied on to approve the sound standard amendment was not sufficient.

    We are currently reviewing the court ruling and evaluating our options moving forward. We hope to have more detailed information about our future operations at the Dragway soon.

    The NHRA Street Legal Drags on Saturday, March 3rd will be canceled.

AutoClub Speedway isn't closed, just the Dragway events are cancelled.
