So the first time there was awesome. Note to self "do not get caught behind or down wind from Nitro". Also make sure you stay past dark to watch the fire on the night Nitro, super exciting to see.

We came for the California Hot Rod Reunion in October. This is an old facility, like stepping back in time. The employees are helpful and courteous. The portable restrooms were clean and like new. The grounds were littered with trash and not cleaned well overnight....More

The hotel is clean and close to Famoso race track, and there are couple of restaurants within walking distance. Indoor pool, and be prepared to hear the train horn during the night, so your earplugs will help both on the track and off.
