March 25th Newsletter

  Hi Everyone,

How are you all fairing through this CRAZY weather? I could swear we just started Spring, but by the temperature dial you'd think we were in the middle of Winter. I sure hope we snap out of this soon. I'd like to start off with an event that I just found out about happening this weekend. The National Jet Boat Association (NJBA) this is America's oldest 1/4 mile drag boat racing organization will hold their Thunder In The Channel 3 event Sat March 26th and Sun March 27th at Lake Elsinore. Gates open at 7am at the Storm Stadium/Lake Elsinore Ski Channel, a 2 day pass $32, Sat $18 and Sun $24. I also just found out about this huge event and didn't want you to miss out, on Sun March 27th Cal -Rods Car Club San Gabriel Valley will hold a huge car show at Santa Anita Race Track from 10:30am - 4pm.

Well we've got some pretty exciting things coming in April, so I thought I'd give you a little preview. We start the month off with a great event put on by the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association, on April 1st, 2nd, and 3rd is the 11th Annual Meguiar's Del Mar Nationals Giant Car Show at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The event features over 2000 Hot Rods, Customs, Classics, Muscle Cars & Trick Trucks, plus a Cars 4 Sale Corral and plenty of vendors and exhibitors. And if just looking isn't good enough you can bring your own car and try out your diving skills at the Goodguys Autocross. Event times are Fri 8am - 5pm, Sat 8am - 5pm and Sun 8am - 3pm. To purchase tickets online go to Some of the other shows and events during April is the return of the Twilight Cruise Night at the NHRA Museum in Pomona on Wed April 6th from 4pm- 8pm, this will begin their monthly cruise night held the first Wed of the month through Oct (excluding Sept during the L A County Fair run).
