Have not confirmed yet but pretty good source says AAA has cut all racing. Including, Force, Famosa (Bakersfield) Pomona. Etc. Yikes! Hope it's not true! Anybody heard of this?


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

Yes Larry it seems to be true. Fabbro just sent me a text that was forwarded to him from 3 other sources off of FB.

Don't think Fontana will be hurt by it. Doubt if they get much money from auto club as well as Bakersfield. Force will be hurt the most. Probably north of 2 million bucks.

So Fontana isn't closing down? Everybody is speculating it's going to be a big rig parking lot.

I doubt they will close. The dragstrip has been in the black since they opened in the current location. Money talks!

You can't believe everything you hear or see on FB. They only show what they want Rumors are just that, rumors.

For you folks that live in the area, can someone swing by the track and see if everything is still in place, like the score boards, etc. It's a 260 mile round trip for me so any help would be appreciated.

I've been hearing (unconfirmed) that they plan on re-opening in March. I'm working on a race schedule for this year and it would help to know what's going on at Fontana.

I also heard that Jim sold his interest in Tucson.

Hey Bob,
I'll try to get by there this afternoon.
I just sent a message to a buddy who races there and he just replied he hadn't heard anything like that.

Thanks Floyd.

The Fontana (Auto Club Dragway web site) just says they are closed, it didn't mention if they will re-open. Tickets to the NASCAR event have been transferred to other events, not a good sign.

Tucson is running this weekend and the track manager told my buddy he heard the rumor and laughed.

AAA is a major sponsor of Roger Penske’s NASCAR teams. I’ve not seen anything to indicate AAA is leaving NASCAR.

Bob, I went by the track. Everything is still in place. The truck and trailer lot starts south of the road by the pits. Only ups tractors and lot's of Swift and other trailers. I didn't see any Amazon.

I have a good idea of the numbers but they may be off a little. Local track in Denton was profitable for many years and they sold out and closed down. Pretty good track and very popular. Now the track as a race track was probably worth 1.5 million yet it sold for around 6 million and shut down. Why? Well the location and railroad close by. The land became much more valuable as a warehouse etc.

So do not think just because a track is making money that it can not sell.

"Dunning-Kruger Effect"
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.
