Streets of Willows is all i know of. It's about 2 hours north from OC. I'm curious to know if there are any others as well. Does anyone know if you can ride California Speedway in Fontana?

There is one group that has been doing days at Fontana, Ca Speed Dreams I believe.

Nothing real close Robert, Fontana (1 hour north and not worth the drive), Willow (2.5-3 hours north), Buttonwillow (2.5-3 hours north).

You've got Fontana (A.K.A. "Fontucky") Buttonwillow, and Willow. I actually think they're all pretty good tracks. Lots of fun.

Looks like PeanutBrit and me might be doing a day at Fontucky this coming weekend (hopefully the same day?? but we'll see).

My initial reluctance to recommend it stems from it's simple infield layout and complete lack of elevation changes. However, when it's 20 minutes from home and price drops to $125 (instead of all the previous offers of 200+) it becomes a tad more enticing.

Just to update you Hammer, there is also an offer from fastrack riders for this coming weekend on the 12/13/14 sat/sun/mon!!!!!

Wanna go????

Brit is talking about Monday but sat or sun works better for me and I'm waiting to hear back if she'll change her preference. How about you?? Anything workable on your schedule.

Robert? Wanna come out and play? Just 320 miles from P AZ?

Is there any more information on this event? I might be able to go on the 14th as long as I buy my leather pants before than.

Do I wanna go..???????? dude I'm already going on the 13th..but alas...w/o my bike, as it is WRECKED... Had to avoid a rider in front of me a week ago last Sat..the dude didn't have a working brake light, and like...stops almost mid turn, I had no where to go..either hit him, or run up over a curb, so I took the curb, did a mini highside..bent both rims, and some other stuff..anyways..I'll be there with some friends..let me know if your going.. sure wish I could ride..

I hope to have my bike ready for the 4th of Aug..they are having a trackday on the ama course...but the cost is $175.00..

Correction from previous post- the days are Fri/Sat/Sun the 12/13/14th part was correct.
