If you love the hot rods and your adrenaline starts pumping the moment you hear the word racing, you can’t go wrong at Irwindale Event Center. Every weekend, the venue features all kinds of events that are perfect for racing enthusiasts and casual fans alike.

This racetrack has been providing thrills for participants and racing fans in the area for over half a century. The Lindom Company acquired the land where the speedway is standing now in 1966. The company then broke ground for the construction of the state-of-the-art Irwindale Speedway which still stands today. Racing got underway right after construction, and today the Irwindale Event Center is thriving as it was before.
