Irwindale Thursday Night 1/8th Mile Drag Racing 5-16-13

Nissan GT-R at the Irwindale 1/8th mile drag strip
A few of the local SoCal Nissan GT-R owners headed over to Irwindale Event Center for some 1/8th mile drag racing Thursday 5-16-13. There are not a lot of local drag strips in LA. Pomona 1/4 Mile drag strip is just about off limits to street cars due to neighbor complaints.

 Fontana - Auto Club Speedway Dragstrip was also shut down by some of its neighbors complaining. The drag strip runs alongside a set of train tracks. Nothing even that loud runs at the drag strip. Typical whiners that move in next to a racetrack or airport and complains.  The latest from July says they are going to install a sound wall to appease the "group of concerned citizens." Hopefully they open the 1/4 mile up again soon. The closest place to run a quarter mile now is Bakersfield.  Check out some photos from last night.

STATEMENT REGARDING AUTO CLUB DRAGWAY
SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, Calif. (July 31, 2012) – “The Auto Club Speedway has reached a settlement with a local group of concerned citizens in the San Bernardino County area known as CCoMPRESS, represented by Chatten-Brown & Carstens related to the operation of the Auto Club Dragway. As a result, the Auto Club Speedway may resume operations at the Auto Club Dragway if it first complies with a series of requirements intended to mitigate the environmental impacts to the surrounding community, including construction of a soundwall.”
