Latest News: Friday Night - Cannery Row in Monterey. There will be a Fire-up of two nitro dragsters outside the InterContinental Hotel. Autograph session will be from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and the Lagua Seca staff have been discussing with the hotel about having a meet-and-greet/Q&A with "Big Daddy" Don Garlits and a handful of other luminaries immediately thereafter in the hotel courtyard that would last about half an hour. More to follow.


Working with the great folks at Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway are doing all we can to ensure that this multi-faceted event is a fun and memorable for all involved. Going in, here is some info that you should know... a few FAQ:

On track photography is limited to approved media only. Will be much tighter than Barona.

Entries Only: Overnight camping and motorhome parking available with your entry or admission.

There will be a special area for hotrods on display. Hotrod entries will also receive a collectable dash plaque.

Food will be available at the track but we invite you to bring E-Z Ups, coolers, ice, your BBQ and your choice of beverages.



You can do static starts at will. Safety rules will be enforced, ie fire jacket and mask. Fire extinguisher at hand. No "jack stand" fire-ups.  NO engaged couplers unless you're doing a push start. For the full guidelines that will be followed go to:
Cacklecar Guidelines

There will be opportunities to push start throughout Saturday either by yourself or as a pair. Burnouts from static starts. This is ALL about cacklecars.

You can participate in the second ever "Line of Fire," an in-unison fire-up at the end of Saturday's activities.

Nitro will not be available at the track.

Monterey has more non-racing things to do, pricy and safer. Salinas has a bigger mix of hotel/motels to choose from, and is less of a tourist spot.

The track is just off a busy highway [Hwy 68] between Salinas [101 Freeway] and Monterey.

Before or after the race, The Seventeen Mile Drive is something special while you're in the neighborhood.
