California Speedway One of NASCARs Greatest New Tracks

One of the latest and greatest of all NASCAR tracks is the one you will find in charming Fontana, California. Opening in 1997, this track has proven itself as very competitive time and time again. The first race run there was won by NASCAR great, Jeff Gordon. Owned by the prestigious International Speedway Corp., the California Speedway was developed to offer few cautions so to increase the excitement and out right thrill of non stop racing action!.

Picture this, a long 2 mile 'D' oval track with 14 degrees of high power banking in the turns, 11 degrees on the front 'D' and not to mention the heart pounding 3 degrees of banking on the backstretch?this simply takes challenge to a whole new level! Since it opened in 1997, the California Speedway has hosted all three of NASCAR's top touring series. When speed matters- make sure your fuel tank is full! This spectacular course will leave you gripping the edge of your sets till the end just waiting on who has the car, the team and the stamina to win!.The Auto Club 500 is a 500 mile NASCAR Nextel Cup stock car race held every year at the California Speedway.
