You can run what ever you want, our main classes are Top Fuel, Top Eliminator, A-Fuel, Jeeps, Buggies, Quads, Jr quads, pee wee, street stock, powder puff and so on.

It is $10 for adults and $5 for kids.
We get racers from all over the western USA.
With our races in Anza they haven't quit been up to par, but that was out in BFE, The new track is in the middle of metropolis and close to the freeways so we have gotten a lot more hits on the web and the phones so there will be a lot more in attendance.

We run all day both days

there are some pics of what we do on my home page if you want to see.

What a day, everything went to hell cause I got heat stroke and I was the only one that knew how to hook everything up. finally sent cars down at about 330 and ran till 6 or so. all the fuel cars run tomorrow.

It is not called bad luck, but called life.

Yeah, some were worth 70,000 in value and they didn't want to loose it to a rock so we fired up the rock picker this morning and broght in some fresh material and they made about 3 passes today. Typical first race blues.

Dont get discouraged. My Dad used to race sand drags years ago in the Hemet wash. We were part of the Palm Springs Dunes Buggy Association back in those days. Larry Minor had the hot rod back in those days . We used to have fun.....In the late 60`s early 70`s

Your dad probably knows my dad then. He raced there too, he had the alchohol express funny car, and our original home track was the old hemet track, ahh the good old days.
