Man I heard they used to have one here at the port of Los Angeles back in the 90's but they shut it down for some reason. Umm maybe in long beach they MIGHT do it. I think Pasadena MAYBE. Irwindale for sure though. Sorry I couldn't help more

I've been calling spot left and right. They all say no lol. I know Fontana use to do it but I think they're in a law suit or something over noise. One place sent me to palm dale or irwindale. Have you been to any of those?

None left. There was Lyons and Orange County International Raceway that let the public run back in the 70s both closed. I don't recall Irwindale or Pomona ever allowing public access.

Yep 1/4 mile i cant wait to go take my baby to see what it can pull in the 1/4 mile
You can drive exotic cars like lambos and gtrs and stuff around the track
Its kind of expensive but i think it would be worth it for a great ride lol
The cheapest one is a supercharged vetter with 600+ hrsp for $99 with personalized instructors 👍

I know its not

And its like a thing they have where you can drive exotic cars like lambos and gtrs and porches around the track with a profesional driver that tells you what to do. For lambos its like $250 for like 8 laps or something
the cheapest is the corvette which has 600+ hrsp for $99
