L.A. Drag racing

Hi all

What would be the best way to get to either Fontana or Irwindale to see a drag meet in September. We will not have a car and be relying on bus or train.

thank you

To Irwindale, you would take the Red Line to Union Station, then three seperate buses. The trip would take 90 minutes to 2 hours.

To Fontana, there are dedicated Metrolink trains directly to the Auto Club Speedway on event days. Again a very long trip.

I know you don't want to rent a car, but unless you like an adventure in long bus/train rides to distant eastern suburbs, you should. These trips would not be pleasant.

You will have a car if you plan on doing this.

You might be able to get there is some sort of unreasonable amount of time. But getting back will be pure torture.

They also have drag racing at Los Angeles County Raceway:


Same thing, though...car!
