Irwindale Speedway has been the home for the HVWs Drag Day, and the famous Bug-In for years. These three events pack the grandstands each and every time.

As reported by Jerry Garrett World Press.com on October 2, Irwindale Speedway located in southern California has been sold to developers. The new owners are reported to be Lindom Properties of Arcada, Calif., for $22 million. The 66 acre facility contains an oval track and an 1/8th mile drag strip. Lincom Properties specialist in "real estate investment development, property and portfolio management." There is a possibility that this land could be used for a future Walmart, but that has not been confirmed. What we do know is that the racing schedule for 2014 will remain as currently planned, but beyond that, anything is possible. Of course, it is our hope that this southern California facility remains open to racing, so our three VW events will remain local.
We've enjoyed a lot of great drag action at Irwindale, since its opening back in 1999.
