49th annual Auto Club NHRA Finals
November 07, 2013
08:00 am - 04:00 pm

The season concludes where it began with an event traditionally laced with drama. The historic racetrack typically enjoys seasonably cool ­temperatures that translate into perfect racing conditions and a spectacular, no-holds-barred battle for the prestigious NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series world championships. It’s a good bet that the Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock, and Pro Stock Motorcycle world titles will still be in doubt at the beginning of the season’s final day.

2012 Recap: Antron Brown (Top Fuel) and Jack Beckman (Funny Car) raced to their first NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series world ­championships. Brown suffered a heartbreaking loss in the opening round and had to wait until Brandon Bernstein upset Tony Schumacher in a thrilling final round to be crowned the champion. Beckman learned his fate one round earlier when Ron Capps lost in front of him in the semifinal round. Cruz Pedregon won the Funny Car title and, like Bernstein, became the 10th different winner in his category in 2012. Allen Johnson (Pro Stock) clinched the title by qualifying and earned his seventh win of the year. Eddie Krawiec (Pro Stock Motorcycle) also clinched during ­qualifying and later lost in the final round to teammate Andrew Hines.

How to Get There: The track is about 25 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. From Interstate 10 east, exit Fairplex Drive or White Avenue and go north; follow signs to Fairplex. From I-10 west, exit Fairplex Drive and go north. The track is about one mile north of the interstate. Arrow Highway provides access from the north.

haynes client testimonials
Ever since I bought my first truck, the first thing I got was a Haynes manual. Since that truck, I've owned 5 other vehicles. Without my Haynes manuals, I wouldn't have got out of some pretty sticky situations. I remember my dad sending me off to pick up my first manual. Ever since then, they have been a huge life saver!! So you can easily say, I'm a dedicated die hard fan from day one!!Thanks!
