Miata Challenge round #2-Autoclub Speedway in Fontana!
*February 22, Sunday*
The first rule of Miata Challenge: Itís not Fight Club.
Who will be Jeff Gordon and who will be Danica Patrick this year?
Will too many pit shenanigans get to Emilio this year (we can hope!)? Will Sonny narrowly miss crashing the razor driftorito into the trash can again this year?
Itís safe! Really.
Everyone is going the same direction, 99% of the time. Or 90%.
Have you seen your insurance increase after a ticket or three? Or the cost of tickets now with any supplemental fees!?
How can it not be? Often we do night before bbqís where we grill beef and drink good craft beers (thereís rumor to be bourbon at select events!).
Driving the cars at your limit is beyond fun! Bring a spouse, bring a friend, give each other joy rides (in the cars).
Heck, Iíll give you a joy ride but wonít guarantee actually being fast, lol.
Round 2 is Autoclub Speedway in Fontana. You'll be like Danica... Or youíll be fast here, so fast. And smooth, like buttah.
A lovely track-2.81 miles and 21 turns of NASCAR goodness, mostly.
This is really one of the best facilities you'll find. The interior sections are well suited to Miatas. The 14 degree banked turns and 11 degree banked front straight are great places to catch up on your reading...if the sound of the Corvettes flying by don't distract you. Not to worry though as by turn 3 they'll be pointing you by again, lol.

*my philanthropy is limited to throwing my money at good beer and beef steaks. That occurs at the track the night before when we bbq.
And we WILL be BBQing at the track the night before. You can camp there or sleep in a local hotel but dont miss the festivities...
