Nascar in California

Thanks for the article from Antone Medina

Heading out to Fontana, California for the Auto Club (California) Speedway has become a tradition for me and my family. Usually a bunch of my relatives from back east fly out here to Cali for an annual family barbeque. All of us have a good time barbequeing the day before and getting a good nights rest. The next day we pile up in some rented vans, set thehome security sytems and head out to Fontana for a day of racing. We usually sit at the grandstand and start our day there just behind it at the midway. There we go shopping for nick knacks at the retail stores and catch a show at the entertainment stage before heading off to the Wolfgang Puck restaurant for some lunch grubbing. Afterward, we chill in the shade and lounge area letting our food digest, before heading out to catch the end of the races. I love the smell of car engines and asphalt that permeate throughout the race track. You get to see all the action from the racing around in circles, the crashes and the pit stops - nothing beats that adrenaline rush you get watching cars whip around at over 200 mph. The 4 turns that this speedway features makes it even more exciting. I seriously cannot wait till the next time we head out for a day of racing and fun!
