Remaining December Events!Sunday, December 28. This one is a visual feast of the glory days of the automobile with hundreds of pre war (that's WW1 by the way) vintage automobiles staging here at Irwindale for their annual Holiday run, featuring steam and kerosene, heavy dusters and goggles, hand-cranked, timeless brass-age beauty. Get here early (gates open at 6am and the Excursion leaves for Pasadena at 10am), dress warm, bring a camera, and step back into the past. Cost: $5 per car (free parking). Celebrity sightings optional. ALL MONTH/ALL YEAR: Irwindale's own, on-site LA Racing Experience is the place where fans become racing experts, finding out just exactly what it takes to guide a 450-horsepower stock car around Irwindale's fast, progressively-banked half-mile. Sit in for some straight talk in ground school, then suit up, pull on a full-face helmet, check the radio with your spotter up there on the top of the grandstands, and then stand on the gas for a set of 20 laps that will excite, thrill, and directly explain (in no uncertain terms) why driving a NASCAR-style stock car is one of those things that every fan should do at least once. The feel of the track coming at you from the driver's seat of one of LA Racing's Super Late Models is something that stays with one for a long time ... everyone who drives the Irwindale oval with LA Racing goes on to watch stock car races with a totally different perspective. Sessions are held on Wednesdays and weekends (to schedule a session or for more information: www.laracing.com).
