On Friday June 1st 2007 there will be a “Save LACR Rally” in front Los Angeles County Raceway; the “Save LACR Rally” is for anyone who is as passionate about the closing of another Drag Strip in L. A. County and putting “More Street Racers” (our kids) back on the streets! The "Closing of Los Angeles County Raceway" and how it will effect the community at large, but most of all our "Young Adults"!
I'm sure that like all of us you are concerned with the “Street Racing” problem that exists today in our society, this is brought home every time we pick up a newspaper or tune in to the local news, and are informed of another accident as a direct result of “Street Racing” …and another loss of “Life and Property”.
LACR has been serving the communities in Los Angeles County for over 40 years; it has been a “Landmark” that has not only generated revenue for the County of Los Angeles but the Cities of Palmdale and Lancaster in particular. It's been the home to numerous associations, including the So Cal Pro Gas Assoc., So Cal Super Street Assoc., Pontiac Drag Days, SCEDA, The Buick Grand National Club, So Cal Super Comp Assoc., the West Coast Corvette Challenge, American Nostalgia Racing Assoc. LACR is also home to the Motion Picture Driving Clinic ( Hollywood Stunt School ) just to name a few. LACR is also host to major events through out the year including, Antique Nationals, the World Jet Finals, The Annual Ratfink Party, and The Annual Big Rigs 4 Kids Charity Truck Drags & Show and the IDRC Finals, along with other NHRA divisional events. Most of all it has given our “Young Adults” and “Race Fans” a “Safe” and “Legal” place to race rather than the city streets. Due to the “Mining of Aggregate” by “Granite Construction” next door to LACR, the Drag Strip is doomed unless you help!
There needs to be at the “Vary Least a Moratorium” on the digging to allow “Local Governments” (City and County) to come up with an alternative!!
Be there Friday June 1st at 6pm and show your support, we need everyone to show up, Drag Racers, Hot Rodders, Kids, Parents, Law Enforcement, City Officials and everyone else. There is strength in numbers so “Let's Unite” and let them know what LACR means to the community!!
