Stay anywhere close to Buck Owens blvd and you will be happy. Dont stay on the south side of town as it is a long drive to the track. The track is about 10 minutes north of town.
The hotels over by Olive are in a rough part of town, but I have stayed there also.
I did have someone break into the car so i stay away from there now.
Go to hotels dot com and you can look around at all the hotels.

Stop by the Currie rearends booth in the midway area and say hi, I will be racing and working the booth. Also, shooting film for Speed Scene live TV.

Stay late at the track if you can, lots of pits parties and live bands even.

There's a newer La Quinta and a Hampton Inn on Hwy 65 at Merle Haggard Dr. About 10 minutes from the track and a little out of Bakersfield proper. We stay there all the time as to a lot of the Famoso regulars

The flies are bad early in the year IIRC. Bug repellent works good. :)

Correct, the only people that complain never worked/lived in an agricultural area before, city folks snivllin thats all.

BUT DONT LEAVE YOUR TRAILER DOOR OPEN FOR THE DAY!!!!! lol

We camped on the spectator side and left the door open for a few hours and OH MY GOD!!!!!!! Thought we'd never get them out but dropped the back door, got out a couple fans and a couple cans of off and convinced them to leave, LOL.

CHRR and the March Meet should be on every nostalgia fans do not miss list, GREAT EVENTS.
