History

Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California is a two-mile D-shaped oval racetrack. The 122-seat Speedway opened in 1997 and has hosted NASCAR races since then. The track currently hosts the annual Auto Club 400, which takes place in March each year.

Since opening, Auto Club Speedway has undergone several expansions. In 1999, 28 more luxury boxes were added to the facility. A couple of years later, in 2001, a new ¼ mile dragstrip was built outside the backstretch, and the infield was reconfigured to hold a road course. Two years later lights were added to the speedway in 2003. Then in 2006, the midway was remodeled adding several new attractions. Most recently, a 1.2-mile road course was added.

In addition to hosting NASCAR races, the Auto Club Speedway also is the site of the AMA Superbike Suzuki Superbike Challenge. The racetrack also hosted previously hosted IndyCar racing from 2002 to 2005 and 2012 to 2015. Outside of racing, several movies have been filmed at the Auto Club Speedway including Charlie’s Angels, Herbie: Fully Loaded, and The Bucket List.
