Fontana Dragway Reaches Settlement With Community, Eyes Reopening

Officials at the quarter-mile Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, California, announced Tuesday that they have come to an agreement with the surrounding community over the strip’s operation.

The official statement posted to the Dragway’s Website reads:

“The Auto Club Speedway has reached a settlement with a local group of concerned citizens in the San Bernardino County area known as CCoMPRESS, represented by Chatten-Brown & Carstens related to the operation of the Auto Club Dragway. As a result, the Auto Club Speedway may resume operations at the Auto Club Dragway if it first complies with a series of requirements intended to mitigate the environmental impacts to the surrounding community, including construction of a soundwall.”

Auto Club Dragway was ordered in late February to cease operations after area residents successfully challenged the San Bernardino County sound standard in Superior Court.

Since then, multiple drag racing sanctioning bodies and series have been forced to find alternative locations to stage events.
