June Vroom!

It looked like this on June 3 before the races started.


 

On Friday, June 6 through Sunday, June 8, it will look and sound like this!

Nearly 10,000 race fans per day come to see and experience Championship Off-Road Racing (CORR) at Fairplex. This is fast, dirty, fender-to-bumper action with 2- and 4-wheel drive trucks. You can see pretty much the entire action from anywhere in the stands. Friday, June 6 is practice and qualifying; races are Saturday and Sunday. General admission is $30.

What you might not know: The CORR folks literally dig up the pavement and reconstruct a part of the Fairplex grounds, turning it into an off-road dirt track. When it’s over, they repave it and it looks just like the usual mild-mannered Fairplex grounds.

Vroom with a view – and it’s almost free

If CORR isn’t your thing, you’ve still got options this weekend at Fairplex. The 22nd Annual Spring Boat Show has more than 350,000 square feet of everything that floats, from runabouts and fishing craft to ski boats and cabin cruisers. Admission is $10, but if you go to the Southern California Marine Association web site, you can get in for $2 (www.scma.com). Runs from Thursday, June 5 – Sunday, June 8.

Freebies!

You’re gonna need a motorhome to haul that new speedboat to one of the Golden State’s many recreational waterways, so you can go on over to the White Avenue lot for the Giant L.A. RV Show. Free admission to this one. Friday, June 6 through Sunday, June 15, which is Dad’s Day. Shopping opportunity here, folks.

  1. Great information for Dad’s Day! Thanks Scoopster…you’re awesome.

  2. Let me just say that CORR rules!!! I’ll be there this weekend. I love that Fairplex has so many different events going on at any given time – I can’t keep track of all the computer shows, llama shows, RV shows, car shows … it never ends! The best is the guitar show y’all have every August … I dig it the most. Have more guitar shows! See you at CORR … and at the Fair too!
