Is there any place to park a car overnight in El Centro? Meeting my parents there on the way to San Felipe?

The owner of a Chevron gas station very close to the freeway I80 (sorry can't remember the street) allowed us to leave a broken prerunner there for a couple days. This was a few years ago. I think they're into MC desert racing. Hope this helps.

Saasta Chevron - they used to race the FUD series in EEE, mini buggies

I've always stay in the Walmart parking lot in Calexico, then cross the border at 0500. I'ts gotten a little tighter these days, but that's our plan for the SF-250. Can't remember the street corner it's on, but it's off hwy 111, it's on the left side and you can't miss it.

Just ask any of us local racers. I have room for about three cars at my home in Imperial. I strongly discourage any of you from parking overnight in Calexico, too many car thefts.

Is there a WalMart down there? They allow overnight parking.

The Walwart (as of a year ago) is loacted on the NE corner of Hwy 111 & Cole Road. We have been paking (under the parking lot lights) for years with no problems to date (motorhomes with enclosed trailers)

Wal Mart in el centro or calexico is your best bet...a lot of lights & ''security''
