Since 1997, California Speedway has grown into one of the premier auto racing venues in the country, hosting two major racing weekends, which are the largest attended sporting events in the state.

The stars of the NASCAR Winston Cup Series make their annual trek to California Speedway April 28-30 for the NAPA Auto Parts 500. Jeff Gordon has won two of the first three races at the 2-mile D-shaped oval, winning the inaugural race in 1997 and dominating last year's run to the finish line. In 1998, he started from the pole and finished fourth as Mark Martin claimed the win.

Also included in the April weekend are the NASCAR Busch Series Grand National Division drivers, competing in the Auto Club 300 on Saturday, April 29. Last year's champion, Matt Kenseth, has moved on to the NASCAR Winston Cup Series, joining defending series champion and 1998 race winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. Todd Bodine won the inaugural NASCAR Busch Series race here in 1997. Rounding out the activities on Saturday is a 200-mile NASCAR Winston West Series Pontiac WideTrack Grand Prix 200 and a concert followed by fireworks in the infield.

In October, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series closes out its season schedule at California. If the 2000 race is anything like the 1999 event, hold on to your seat. Jack Sprague took the checkered flag and the 1999 points title in the season finale, edging Joe Ruttman by 0.266.

With more than 86,000 grandstand seats and 1,700 infield RV locations, California is a great place to watch a race and experience the thrills of NASCAR. In addition, numerous hospitality areas are available for those seeking to entertain clients or just looking to add a little extra something into an already exciting day. In addition to the already successful Chalet Village, the speedway will host the "Taste of California," featuring delectable cuisine and award-winning wines from different regions of California.
