Auto Race Track · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Auto Club Raceway at Pomona, also known as Pomona Raceway, is a racing facility located in Pomona, California that features a quarter-mile dragstrip. Since its opening in 1961, the dragstrip has hosted the NHRA's Winternationals event – the traditional season opener – and since 1984, the season's last race, the NHRA Finals. These two events have contributed to its becoming perhaps one of the most famous dragstrips in North America. The facility has a seating capacity of 40,000 spectators, and it is one of the few dragstrips in the USA that is operated directly by the NHRA. This dragstrip has also gone by the nickname of The Fairplex, in reference to its location at the Fairplex, formerly called the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds.

  • Best day ever. First time for my grandson.
  • It's the fastest drag strip I have been on so far, and the site of the first 90mph speed my Z24 Cavalier ever produced, with its 173c.i. V6 engine (2.8L), in the 1/4 mile. However, I wish a re-pavement truck and crew would smooth out some rough spots on the way to the staging lanes from the pits.... 😀
