I will be in South El Monte working next week. The Winter Nationals in Pomona are the weekend after with the final eliminations on Sunday the 8th. I was wondering if anyone in the area would be interested in going on that Sunday. Cost is about $50 for admission and I would be amicable to paying for someone that would drive to the event.

    I know this may be unrelated, but will you be making a stop for the US Nationals at LOR. If so, I may be able to make that event.

    Last year I went for the whole 6 days. This year it is too early to say.

    Okay. Just wondered.

    I can't believe I can't get any takers on this. It isn't that I need a ride but more like how do you hook up with anyone in a madhouse of tens of thousands of people. I felt it easier to solicit a ride and pay for a ticket in return. I am working long hours all week as well as likely 1/2 a day Saturday so the races were my best chance to visit in the area. These events are a lot more awesome in person than on TV as you can't imagine the noise and can't feel it rip through your body when the cars launch. I love the smell of nitro and mixed with burnt rubber is even better.

    Not sure we have any active Icrontians who are into racing in the LA area anymore. Many of them have moved

    Alls well that ends well. My trip was just canceled as of today. It looks like I may need to make a bigger decision. Like, do I want to move to accept an advancement or decline and possibly end up having to find a new job.

    For what its worth at this point, I would have loved to go with you. NHRA drags with an old school Icrontian! Would have been awesome. Alas I did not speak up as there are already family plans that weekend.

    Rock on @Mt_Goat !

    There are 2 events in Pomona every year. It all begins and ends in Pomona and there will be the finals in November. I will let you know when it gets closer as I generally get to at least one of them every year. Thanks for speaking up. I like meeting Icrontians everywhere.

    As for the rest of you. There is still Norwalk, Ohio, Chicago and Indy closer to the IC homeland.
