Southern California has long been regarded as the birthplace of drag racing, and the historic Auto Club Raceway at Fairplex plays an integral role in the story.
The Auto Club Raceway at Pomona is the oldest venue on the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series circuit, and has been the home of the Auto Club NHRA Finals for 30 years! The Raceway was originally built in the early 60s as a way to encourage safe street racing.
What began as a simple dirt parking lot with an asphalt strip down the middle, and bleachers holding less than 300 spectators, has grown into a 1,320-ft racing strip where thousands of fans gather for the WinterNationals and Auto Club NHRA Finals every year. Fairplex is proud to be a unique part of the racing industry.
