I find it amazing the burning , looting etc just stopped. HMMMM And they think the public is clueless...


Raceless in California!

They are late to that party.
Car Salvage/auction companies beat them to the punch.

Englishtown drag racing gone, other motor sports activities still active though.
Hundreds of cars being stored/parked on the former dragstrip pits paved areas

Atco supposedly under contract and in the permit approval process to become a car storage and auction site

Large tracts of land worth millions to businesses that can make big money on a site that is on life support as a drag strip

Happening more often than not around the country.

We drag racers are an endangered species....Dinosaurs

Its been 4 or 5 years since it closed but Dallas raceway in Crandall, known as the concrete palace closed and is now a parking lot and salvage yard for semi trucks. Track, tower and all out buildings still there, concrete is wall to wall trucks.

If we are going to protest, loot and steal chit Chuck I want to pick the place, maybe a Jeg's or Summit, ya know some place that has the chit I need. I got a wide screen, don't need that but a Pro Charger, WOW now you're talking'.

What about snacks? My wife can bring a cheese tray, quiche or maybe even a few salads. Another great thought, lets protest a beer and wine store something to go with that cheese tray.

What do ya think ChuckO?

There are 3 Amazon fulfillment centers within 15 miles of Fontana (San Bernardino). So I doubt they would build another in Fontana.


When everything is coming your way, your probably in the wrong lane.

One of the girls that works at Fontana said that they are going to re-open, crossing my fingers. I can do Bakersfield twice a year, maybe three but not more often. It's a 544 mile round trip from here with the Grapevine in the middle.

What is a TS Barry?

Barry,
Kyle Seipel said they are only going to have Wednesday night drags for a while. I would assume till they get a new track manager.

JRED , we were .005 from being Top Studs at Vegas... Big Grin. We still had a blast!



Yeah kinda throws a stick in the spokes. No fault of Kyles. We had it good for a long time with Summit series bracket drags /club races/ testing and NHRA.

I spoke with someone yesterday that told me he made a bid to buy the Fontana track prep equipment.

Has anyone spoken with Mike Rice about what is, or is not going on at Fontana? There is a lot of conflicting information about the Drag Strip, most of it not encouraging.

A lot of the NHRA staff members are working from home so it's difficult to get in touch with Mike.

Mike doesn't know it they are closing or not seems like we will have to be patient and wait. Personally I think they will stay open and start racing in early April or sooner.
