03.17.2019: Event Producer Steve Gibbs is proud to announce that Emmy winning L.A. newscaster Gayle Anderson will be doing threee of her patented live AM reports from Nitro Revival 3 at Irwindale Speedway and Event Center on Friday, May 17. It will air on KTLA Channel 5 with the purpose of promoting the action packed event on Saturday, May 18.

According to Gibbs it was a chance encounter that led to this media jewel. "I was at the Costa Mesa car show setup this morning, where I was able to talk with Gayle Anderson, who was doing a live broadcast for KTLA - Channel 5 in Los Angeles. When I informed about Nitro Revival, she was all over it…and has already scheduled herself to be there on Friday, May 17, during our setup for a live broadcast."

Gayle has been reporting for the KTLA Morning News since 1993 and in that time has become a viewer-favorite due to her enthusiastic participatory style of reporting on unique, exciting and interesting stories in Southern California. Nitro Revival is right in her wheelhouse as its definitely unique and absolutely exciting.


HOST HOTEL:  Courtyard by Marriott  in Monrovia.

It is very convenient…maybe 3 or 4 miles from the Irwindale track. The link above will take you to our special Nitro Revial rate reservation form.

700 West Huntington Drive
Monrovia, CA 91016

We have been given a rate of $135 a night, which is quite a bit lower
than their “special” track rates on those dates.

There are some very good restaurants nearby. Claim Jumper is walking distance. Others include; Red Lobster, The Derby, Olive Garden, Souplantation, Capital Seafood, Tokyo Wako…and lots of fast food places.

The parking lot is good sized, but we would like you to bring your rigs directly to the track if possible. Would like to get as many Cackle cars in on Friday as
possible. Gonna have the In-N-Out Cookout unit at the track Friday evening.

This is the original core 2017 Nitro Revival Team. It started with some thoughts thrown out by Steve to Ron. Long story short, Don, Cindy and Connie joined the fold and yes, we could do this. But, where and when? Ron came up with the only option, Barona Raceway. And it was Ron who nailed down the deal for the track. Without Steve's vision and experience and Ron's idea for the venue, this event would not have happened. We had a lot of help along the way, thanks to all.
