We’re Baaack.

The Fair has packed up and moved on until next year and the Fair-ey Blogster is taking a well-deserved break. This means that all those buildings and grounds are available for a spectacular line-up of fall events.

twilight cruise01 300x201 Were Baaack.FREEBIE! Starting things off on Wednesday, Oct. 1, Twilight Cruisers will fill the lower administration parking lot in front of the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum for an evening of car camaraderie and nostalgia. There’s also a pretty cool 50/50 raffle where you can win some cash. You might also be selected by a panel of judges to drive your “ride” in the parade that kicks off the NHRA Winter Finals in November at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona, which is also right here at Fairplex.

All Twilight Cruisers can spend some time in the NHRA Museum, also for free (admission is usually $7), so it’s a double-dip FAIRPLEX FREEBIE.

There’s more for autophiles Friday. Oct. 3 – Sunday, Oct. 5 when Off-Road Expo fills no fewer than six Fairplex exhibit halls as well as various ground locations. Now in its 9th year at Fairplex, this event has everything for the off-road enthusiast, including the latest toys, technologies, gear and accessories from hundreds of national and local exhibitors.

New this year, the Expo will open one day early, on Friday, Oct. 3 to allow more time for off-road fans to enjoy all the action.
