I agree, it's funny they promote safe racing and tell us take it to the track but when there isn't a track where the freck do we go? Apparently the news was such a big thing even speed channel covered the story and will be trying to get answers from the owners because the excuses of low attendance is bs, people who went to the Thursday drags know how crowded it gets.

Well I tell ya that Fontana is ghetto compared to irwindale. I didn't like it just really sketchy. The quality that irwindale had was really good. Fontana just seemed more rundown and sometimes looked like an abandoned track

There was also two large Aircooled VW events at Irwindale every year for at least the past 20 years or so. I've only been going for the last 5 years or so, but it really was the only place for us to race besides Fontana's terrible track, and also had a large space for a parts swap and car show.

The news I hear coming through though is that Lucas Oil is looking into buying the facility.
