Rev up for racing action at this classic track

Whether you’re into NASCAR or drag racing, Auto Club Speedway delivers all kinds of thrills for fans of powerful cars and high-speed action. The 2-mile, D-shaped oval draws top drivers for springtime’s Auto Club 400, one of NASCAR’s premier events. To really get the full experience and to see cars (and sometimes drivers) up-close, pick up pre-race pit passes for NASCAR race weekend events. And while the races are definitely the big draw, there are also live performances and stunt shows, and you can camp in the infield.

"Auto Club Speedway delivers all kinds of thrills for fans of powerful cars and high-speed action."

The speedway’s Auto Club Dragway hosts NHRA events, and if you want to put your mettle to the pedal, attend one of the racing schools held at the speedway throughout the year.

The Speedway is also home to year-round racing schools, club racing, car shows, new car testing, music festivals and a variety of movie, television and commercial productions.

With its inviting destinations and uncrowded wilderness, this region feels like an insider’s secret amid the bustling excitement of Southern California.

Mount San Gorgonio—nicknamed “Old Grayback”—is the tallest peak in Southern California, at 11,502 feet/3,506 meters.

Surprising alpine scenery around Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear beckons, with pine-scented trails in summer and winter sports when the snow flies. If you’re into action, get the adrenaline rush of seeing the world’s best NASCAR racers compete at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. For a dreamier escape, float in a hot-air balloon above rolling Temecula Valley wine country.
