Auto Club Speedway Introduction

Home of the NASCAR Cup Series, the Auto Club Speedway is a 2-mile racetrack in Fontana, California. Built on the site of the old Kaiser steel mill in 1995, the Auto Club Speedway was formerly known as the California Speedway. It has a grandstand capacity of 68,000 and hosts other speed racing events, including AMA Superbike, NASCAR Xfinity, and the IndyCar Series. The annual Red, White & Cruise festival also takes place here in July. The stadium features the Discover IE FanZone offering restaurants, shops, and an entertainment stage. There's an outdoor go-kart center and a driving experience track nearby.
