Travel Tips: Auto Club Speedway

Auto Club Speedway will play host to both the NASCAR Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series in Fontana, Calif. After a weekend of beating and banging on the short track in Bristol, the drivers are headed to tackle the two-mile D-shaped asphalt track on the sunny West Coast.

The reigning winners for both series at this track are Joey Logano (Nationwide) and three-time Cup champion Tony Stewart (Sprint Cup). After last week’s disappointing results for both drivers, I am sure they will be focused on trying to capture the checkered flag this upcoming weekend.

This week’s Travel Tips will give you a suggested list of local restaurants and track activities going on throughout the weekend.

Enjoy Race Fans!

Local Restaurants:
There are a number of local restaurants within 10 miles of the speedway which include the following:
