Good Vibrations Motorsports March Meet

After supporters rallied to help out after a devastating fire in January, Auto Club Famoso Raceway is ready to open its gates to racers and fans for the 2016 Good Vibrations Motorsports March Meet. The fire destroyed the old tower, VIP suite, and storage area, but the necessary repairs have been made and the raceway is looking forward to this event.

"Thanks to the support of race tracks and fans around the world, we were able to make the needed repairs and we are looking forward to this year's March Meet and getting back to race," said Blake Bowser, VP and GM of the Kern County Racing Association.

This year, NHRA's Funny Car Class will be celebrating its 50th anniversary. The Good Vibrations Motorports March Meet will kick off the first race for the nitro fueled dragsters and funny cars of the NHRA Heritage Series. Over 450 competitors in 14 other categories will come together to make the Good Vibrations March Meet one of the largest drag racing events in the world.

The main attraction of the Good Vibrations Motorsports March Meet is Quarter-mile Nitro drag racing, but there is plenty of other things to do and see during the race weekend. Vendor row gets bigger each year and has an even more diverse selection of merchandise. You can find everything from designer handbags to model cars, toys, and clothing. And of course, auto enthusiasts can take advantage of the latest offerings from the various manufacturers represented.

For those looking for even more of a selection and potentially better prices, the Swap Meet area is full of everything you could want. Hundreds of vendors flood the grounds with items for the car fan and gear head. 

This four day long drag racing event will attract raers and fans from all around the world to compete for the title of Good Vibrations Motorsports March Meet Champion. The event will kick off on March 3 at 7am. The "official" kickoff party will take plae that night at The Original Roadhouse Grill & Chuys parking lot, 8490 Rosedale Hwy, Bakersfield, CA 93312.
