Drag Racing in California -

I was doing some research today on Drag Racing in California. I wanted to learn more about what California has to offer for drag racing because such a huge amount of our customers come from there. Anyway, I came across this website that I thought I would share. It shows the destruction of a popular drag strip, Los Angeles County Raceway in Littlerock, CA. The track had been open since 1964 and was closed last year because the leaseholder, Granite Construction, wanted to continue to mine the ground under the track. All in the name of business. Reminds me of the destruction of our beloved Drive-in Theater in our area. Sorry, but just what we needed... another car dealership.

Here is a ariel photo of the track before it was closed.















Here is a video of the track, I believe the day after they had to close the track. As of today I don't believe they have found a new home for the track. Visit this website for more information. http://www.savelacr.org/



That's all for now.
