Sorry about that guys...I'm 4 for 4 now. Every time I make some laps at an oval track around here it goes away soon thereafter...

Saugus, Mesa Marin, Cajon & now Irwindale. :(

Can you please make an attempt at 5 for 5 by turning some laps at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway?

Unfortunately, this was a few years in the making; the rock quarry next door didn't leave them room for much needed expansion. They should have taken a page from the California Speedway and built on land that can't be redeveloped. :(

Let me tell you why that is a bad idea: Fontana and Irwindale were the only drag strips open to the public (if you aren't in the NHRA for its two events, no Pomona for you) in So Cal, now there'll just be one, which means A LOT more street racers. For better or for worse, So Cal NEEDS Fontana.

However, feel free to race here in Vegas, they aren't closing anytime soon... and come say hello when you do! :wave:

Good point on the drag strips! I actually have no desire to run the oval at Fontana at all - if I go there it will be to get more seat time in the FR shown in my avatar.

The Vegas oval would interest me, or Phoenix. I'm actually considering coming out next year to see the Red Bull Air Races since they aren't coming here any more.

Hey now it's the idiots running the place, leave the track out of it.

Announced tonite at the race: the landlord has extended the lease thru the end of '15! :woohoo:

p.s. I never saw so many people want to lynch a clergyman until tonite when he spoilered the NW race during the invocation! :annoy:

Irwindale Speedway likely to be demolished for outlet mall: City officials Wednesday will likely approve plans to demolish the iconic Irwindale Speedway to pave way for a 700,000-square-foot outlet mall. City Council will hold a public hearing about the project at a meeting where officials are also expected to approve a development agreement with Irwindale Outlets Partners, LLC, change the site's zoning code to commercial and certify the final Environmental Impact Report. The Irwindale Outlet Center project, which includes design plans for an outdoor shopping center, entertainment stage, a central plaza and dining courtyard, is expected to generate thousands of jobs and bring a new heartbeat to the community. The 63-acre site, bordered by the San Gabriel Valley Freeway and Live Oak Avenue, has changed uses several times since the 1960s, when it was a quarry, mined for sand and gravel by Pacific Rock. When the mining operation ended in the mid '70s, it was converted into a 200-foot deep landfill of mainly construction waste for nearly 20 years. It later became home to the Irwindale Speedway in 1999. When Irwindale Outlet Partners, LLC purchased the property for $22 million in September 2013, the owner extended the lease with 211 Enterprises, which operates the Irwindale Event Center, on a year-by-year basis.(Pasadena Star News)(3-24-2015)
