Autoclub Speedway in Fontana - Drag Racing 10/15

Does anyone have more information? I can't get the exact times from the site...it just says 6am, and no one there picks up that knows the answers.

What time do the races go on till? Can we get there later than 6am... say noon?

Has anyone done drags at this track? Can you give a little more insight on the process and experience (good track, organized, etc)?

Racing starts at 9am and ends at 5 pm. I haven't been to a day race in several years......they use to break for lunch at 12 noon. As long as they haven't reached their max (500 cars), you should still be able to check in.

Make sure you bring your registration, insurance, and a snell approved helmet. Wear long pants.....no shorts. Track prep is ok....not as good as Irwindale, but it's ok. DA usually hovers around 2800 - 3100, so don't expect great times compared to other tracks.

I will be there.....

Thank you! I appreciate all of your input. Now to order a helmet, or do I really need one with a stock (CAI only) SS M6? I read that you don't need one if you're not below 13.99.

You're welcome.....you should buy one to avoid any hassle. You definitely have the car to break into the 13s. It would suck to hit 13.9, then get kicked out.....Just make sure it's snell approved.

He and I have sent a few PMs back and forth and I'm hoping to go. But I know he'll be coming from the Hollywood area and I'm coming from the Thousand Oaks area - so anyone out in this general vicinity give us a shout and it'd be awesome to get a Camaro caravan going!

Nitros...Sick....I may stop by to hang with you all but I'm not gonna race the Beast until I get my suspension done.

My girls have Soccer but I should be done by 1pm...I may even go to meet another Camaro group at Whitwood mall at 2pm.. Need to see what the Mrs. wants to do.

i was reading the rules, it says
Exhaust
Must be routed through street legal muffler(s). All runs will be monitored on a decibel meter (100db at 100" from the strip). If it is too loud you will not be allowed to run. NO EXCEPTIONS! It is your responsibility.

& my buddy has lt headers with a muffle delete on his '11 l99. well they let him run?

You should be ok.

I have LTs and Borla ATAK. I haven't had any issues..... Here's a short vid (only brought rpms up to 4k)

You should be fine. They are more interested in the old muscle cars that have open headers. They have been having issues with a neighbor about the noise.

just saw this, sorry. I actually won't be making it out to Fontana today. Aet08 was who I had talked to about getting a caravan set up - but I know at this point in the day most ppl have probably already headed out. Sorry!

I just go back but got there late(3:45PM) so there was only one Camaro left. It looked like a dark Blue one that ran 14.1 the time I saw him run.

That was me, IBM, CAI intake w/ADM scoop only, M6...my best run ended up being a 13.838 @ 104.02, horrible R/T on that one, 0.315..on my best R/T (0.045), I slipped 3rd gear and got like a 14.1 or 14.2. I was going up against my other Camaro (driven by my friend)...'02 SS, M6, silver w/black stripes which you probably saw. I was hoping to do better than 13.838, but...I have heard that track isn't idea for getting best times. All in all, not bad I guess for my first time.

I did not get a chance to say high as you were in a hurry to line back up again before they closed the lanes. The track will be open again on the 29th.

Fontana is slow and they don't prep it very well. Guess it cost to much money to spray the whole track.

I left the track around noon. I ran 4 times.....spun 1st gear on my first run 13.5 @109. On my second run I missed 2nd gear and ran 13.9 @ 107. My last two runs the car grabbed great in first (2.0 60fts) but spun badly in 2nd to the point when I had to completely back out of the gas and get back in it. Those runs were 13.21 @ 109 and 13.35 @ 109.....
