FROM TERI H Traffic: Traffic leaving the track after a cup race can be hectic.  Traffic in and out of the race has improved since they implemented the parking passes.  It's not as bad as Vegas (the worst) or Phoenix (almost as bad as Vegas as far as leaving the race).

Metrolink 2015 directly to the Speedway

Forget about driving to the race, take the train - FOR FREE!  Ride the Auto Club 400 Express to Auto Club Speedway's Metrolink stop conveniently located just outside the track's backstretch.  From there passengers will board a free tram taking them to the entrance gates.  Metrolink tickets must be reserved in advance from Auto Club Speedway.  The free train ride will be offered to a limited number of race fans with the support of Clean Transportation Funding from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC). After the limited number of free tickets are depleted, race fans will be able to purchase the discounted $19 round trip train tickets. ROUTES AND MORE

There are three main tram stop locations outside the oval:
West Tram Stop: Located outside Turn 4 at the southeast corner of parking Lot 11. This stop serves those guests that need to access the West (Even) sectioned grandstands or access through the tunnel.
East Tram Stop: Located outside Turn 1 at the southwest corner of parking Lot 7. This stop serves those guests that need to access the East (Odd) sectioned grandstands or Chalet Village.
Metrolink/North Tram Stop: Located on the north side (backstretch) of the facility. This tram stop serves Metrolink guests as well as those that have parked in the north parking lots such as Lots 8 and 10, as well as portions of Lots 7 and 9.
Guest Express Trams are also located in the Infield to assist our guests In the Infield camping area. Remember, for guests’ safety, Infield camping area trams never run past daylight. Please check posted signs for current times.

FROM TERI H Trams:  If you're on the Eastern side of the track, take the Midway tram located in parking lot 4 instead of the Back Straight tram located across from it in lot 7 (if you want to get to the main gate quicker.)  The Midway tram also makes 3-4 stops at the front of the track.  If you want to go all the way around the back property and get dumped outside of turn 4, then take the Back Straight tram.  NOTE:  A really cool thing to do is wait for the truck race to start and THEN take the Back Straight tram.  You can see the trucks going by you at 180 while you're going 35 down the back stretch.  Very cool experience!  Sadly there will be no truck race in Cali in 2010.

PARKING
TRAFFIC INFO - YA'LL WILL NEED THIS!!!!!!!!!!!
980 AND 1070  AM

When we went to the California Speedway something happened to us that has never happened in our collective century of chasin' racin'. 
The Speedway ran out of parking! 
They parked us in the infield and then herded us like cattle out of the infield into our $135.00 concourse seats.  Everything below goes out the window when it's race day.  They had closed the first 4 exits we came to coming from south of the track.  They sent us at least 4 exits past the speedway, then wrapped us back around from behind the Tram stop, funneled us thru speedway parking into the infield.  I even called Frankie on my cell cause it was the weirdest thing that has ever happened to us trying to park on any Speedway property.  Also not one single house across the street from the speedway parked fans in their yards...

Free Parking....
HAHAHAHAHAHA

New Parking Plan - all ticketed guests will have a parking pass to enter the speedway property.  The color of the parking pass corresponds with the entry gate and the designated parking lot.  Each pass offers a suggested route, with a printed map, for freeway and surface streets to the track. More Info

PLEASE GO TO THE SPEEDWAY WEBSITE AND LOOK AT THE ABOVE LINK....OF COURSE ALL THAT GOES OUT THE WINDOW WHEN THEY RUN OUT OF PARKING.

They parked us in the infield and we had a grandstand ticket!  NEVER in all the years have I've been going racing has a speedway run out of parking! 

BLACK FLAG FROM LIZ: My family and I went to the Fontana race for Labor day weekend.  What a fiasco!!  We have been going to this track for six years and now we will never return.  Our "preferred" parking lot has been hacked in two to make way for the new "Opportunity, Fan Zone".  There was not one trash can in the parking lot. The closest bathrooms (only about 10 for a lot that holds at least 300 cars) were over 100 yards away.  We arrived at 7:00 am to set up (the lot doesn't open until then).  Normally, we tailgate, shop, tailgate, shop......until the race starts.  When we got there, we discovered that the new "fan zone" doesn't open until noon.  We watched so many dissappointed people taking trams or walking (at least a mile) from the outer parking lots only to be turned away.  By the time we got in to shop, we couldn't even find the trailers we wanted to visit.  Also, a lot of them weren't even there.  They have created a maze.  Maybe to get you lost, hot and tired so you will buy one of their $5 lemonades. 
The vendors we did find and talk to, said that they hate the new set up.  It costs more for them to come in and one said that their sales were down by 50%.  The new track management said it is trying to attract the Hollywood crowd. That must be why they put in the big new restaurant, Wolfgang Puck's Apex.  Who wants to pay $12 for a hamburger. 
I emailed public relations as soon as I got home and got a response after about 2 weeks.  One comment that stood out was "our commitment is to race fans attending the event".  This along with the rest of the response leads me to believe that they want tailgaiting out.  They want everyone in their new "fan zone" buying their food and drinks.  It is easy to understand that they want to sell their product but how can a family of four afford to buy drinks at $5 each and $12 hamburgers after they already shelled out $600 for the race tickets. Some of the solutions they offered me were, opening the gates a little earlier so we could have bathroom access. Here is a good one, opening the track for a free event on Thursday night so that we could shop the vendors.  Like none of us have to work on Friday or take our kids to school.

FROM TERI H. Parking Helpful Hint: When buying tickets from the speedway over the phone, you can request what lot you want to park in.  You have to have a free parking pass in order to park in your designated lot on Cup race day.  Park in almost any lot on Nationwide race day.  All of the speedway lots are paved, but there's a few strips of grass for tailgating.  If you want to get a patch of grass next to your parking space to set up your canopy, you'd bettter be there within the first hour of the gates opening.

CONCESSIONS

My, my, my the concessions at this place were different.  No Bar B Q but they have Carne Asada which people have tried to tell me is Bar B Que.  It's not.  Wine coolers were being sold.  Mexican & Thai food that we couldn't pronounce but Jimmy had to buy.  So there we were a big ole Bubba & Bubbate eatin' Thai food and sipping our wine coolers.  HMMMMMMM!  That being said let me say that high prices reigned here as it does at most tracks.  WARM, small bottles of water were 3 bucks. 

No independent vendors anywhere we looked. The track apparel concessions were the normal high price.  One thing I noticed that was cool, was that they had a hauler that sold Bobby Allison, Dick Trickle and a few other older drivers shirts.  Maybe I haven't noticed it before because I don't usually go to the corporate vendors haulers.

RESTROOMS

There is a  serious lack of rest rooms.  I was waiting in line at the restroom right down from my $135.00 seat and decided to walk down and find the next one.  Well folks, I walked from section 119 until section 140 without seeing another restroom.  When I finally got in the rest room there were only 9 stalls and 2 sinks!  Do the owners not realize that only 2 sinks backs up the line as much as only 9 stalls in a women's room? If that is all the plumbing you can afford for gosh sakes do what Humpy does and add port-o-potties along the fence!  When we left I went in every restroom I found from our seats at roughly the start finish line, to the end of the grandstands in turn 4 and only found 5 restrooms that had 9 stalls in each.  The Rock & Darlington's high dollar seats have bathrooms close that have at least 50 stalls and 25 sinks!  After the race when we went to the ground level there was this BIG brick building that was a bathroom with a hundred stalls.  Of course NO WHERE on the high dollar concourse level where we were did it have a sign to tell you about this bathroom.

FROM TERI H. Bathrooms: Ladies, if you have to go during the race and you're up in the grandstands, make your way down to the main level.  There are very large restrooms on the main level.  And there is now an escalator to boot to help you (for part of the way) get back to your seat.  You'll won't believe the lines for the restrooms in the grandstands!
 
STAFF

I called this speedway at least 5 times before we left to make sure what was what.  Every time I explained we were from the east and had did many races at traditional tracks but we would be coming to CA speedway for the first time.  At no time did anyone tell me some things they should have.  For example:  While we were trying to get in the gate (after being made to park in the infield because they ran out of parking places) they told Jimmy "no aluminum cans".  Now, there I was with my regulation 6x6x12 cooler filled with what, aluminum cans.  I was not a happy camper.  However, because the speedway was in a panic due to the running out of parking places they weren't checking coolers!  Now what I found interesting is that a few rows in front of us were some guys drinking out of long neck BOTTLES, GLASS bottles. I know 'cause I went and asked.

Additional or tow vehicles may be parked overnight in the designated exterior lots (Lot 7 and 8).  California Speedway reserves the right to load in vehicles out of order to accommodate time restrictions.  Please be patient as it is our goal to get all RV guests in the Infield as soon as possible. This will allow RV’s to be placed in the Infield quicker, allowing guests the opportunity to get into their spaces smoothly
