    Exciting new things....

    Fall Fling 25th Anniversary at Irwindale Speedway Saturday October 24, 2020 this year.

    The LA City is not issuing park permits.


    Fall Fling 25th Anniversary

    October 24, 2020 (Sat)
    Irwindale Speedway, Irwindale CA

    All Mopar:
    -Swap Meet
    -Show and Shine car show field
    -Drag Racing Test N Tune 1/8 mi
    -with walk-in Participant admission.***

    *** NOTE: Our events, like always, have PARTICIPANTS shopping, selling, showing, and supporting those cars OUTDOORS. There will be no grandstands seating or presentations.

    Masks absolutely required with social distancing practiced.


    Please be understanding of this late location change. We will have basic flyers with email and limited mailings. We really need you all to get the word out by social media, cruise's, word of mouth etc.

    But you WILL have an opportunity to participate in a Mopar event. Adapt and enjoy!

    Remember we are all PARTICIPANTS !!

      California Mopar fans planning to come?

      One local Mopar drag guy said he knew about 30 Mopar drag buddies that are all in. He’s got the burgundy 68 Dart turbo SB that was on cover of Hot Rod magazine.

          Forwarding to my non-A-body Mopar buddies in Utah. I've done a bunch of VW shows there, it's no Woodley Park, but it also has it's advantages!

              And that’s a great point.

              Some things will bother people. Some might not go. But there are advantages and other new people will attend. It’s more centrally located population wise.

              Bummer no grass. But there will be less dust

              Bummer paid walk in participants. But they have Drags to watch and beer to drink. And no random public passer by’s that worry show car owners

              Bummer passenger in show cars will have to pay Participant admission. But no crazy LA Park dept rules. At Irwindale you can leave whenever you want. Not locked down to 1pm


              Some people choose not to wear a mask. That’s fine, we respect your choice. But that person should sit this one out. We can’t be everything to everybody. Especially in the current Covid situation.

                    He's just a guy. Bob Layton. His dad was Lee Layton. He built VW racing motors in Riverside back in the day. Their family raced Baja, The Mint and whatnot.

                        I'll be there, not sure which car, the extra 40 minutes isn't an issue.

                            If wearing masks is a requirement, that is one thing. If you have to write this to appease the safety police, I understand but I am one of many that feel that this is the greatest scam that the world has ever seen.

                              No we are not just writing that. That’s what needs to be done to pull this off and keep the event from being shut down.

                              This won’t be the first or last event they required mask.

                              Yes you will need to wear the mask.

                              The track has shut down the drag start gate at previous functions when they saw people or person without mask.

                              Technically a little closer for me too. Maybe a half hour, depending on traffic. Either way, I’ll be going.

                              Everyone that elected the "leaders" in this state should have their asses kicked for it.

                                What are the entry fees?
                                Vehicle with Driver?
                                Passenger?
                                Walk-in?
                                Or is it just a per person fee and the vehicle is irrelevant, or on top of that?
