BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- The March Meet has become an international destination for many drag racing fans from all over the world and this year Auto Club Famoso Raceway will be displaying the flags of the nations represented by attending fans. International fans are encouraged to check in at the tower and let us know what country they are visiting from. At the end of each day, those nations flags will be added to the display across the starting line, where they will proudly be flown throughout the event.

"We get visitors from all over the world. The March Meet is a Mecca for many drag racing fans and we want to show them how much their support means to us. Displaying the flags of countries represented will be a great way to document the international draw the March Meet has." - Blake Bowser,VP and GM of the Kern County Racing Association

Auto Club Famoso Raceway will also be giving away prizes throughout the event to visitors from other nations. At the end of each day of racing, visitors will be allowed onto the racetrack where they can take pictures with their nations colors in the background.
