Super Class Racing Returns to Auto Club Dragway
By Bob Johnson PHOTO_CAPTION:
For over three years the Southern California "Super Series" associations have been without a home
drag strip when Auto Club Dragway normal drag racing activities were shutdown to environmental
issues. A great-looking sound wall was constructed earlier this year, and racing has returned to
the Fontana track. The SoCal Pro Gas and Super Street associations, along with the SCEDA racers,
conducted their first races at Fontana this past weekend.
