This should be sweet for WCHRA this season...

I should be testing my new car there in two weeks... I'm a bit worried since the track probably will not work so soon after being redone.

The pits have fairly new paving from the front gate entrance to the end of the quarter mile, the full width of the pit area. Late last year, they paved the road area strips between the pit areas from the end of the quarter mile all the way back to the very back. There have been a lot of improvements since the Bowsers have been in control.

The Aroma.....
Uniquely Famoso! You get used to it after a while and it is because of Famoso's surroundings that it will be around for a long time. All agricultural and oil fields. There will be no urban encroachment there for a long long time if ever. That aroma is from fermenting agricultural waste such as almond hulls.

Tim, we've been pretty anxious to see the WCHRA schedule so we can can schedule our vacation days. Glad to hear it's coming together. See ya soon

I love Famoso. I grew up there. I used to drive from Santa Maria to race my 72 RS/SS 4-speed Camaro and then drive home. The smell was part of the atmosphere! I really miss it.
