Irwindale Event Center (CA) Announces Final Date Of Operation

Irwindale Speedway and Irwindale Dragstrip officials have announced that the track property owners have set the date of January 31, 2018, as the last day of operation for the Irwindale Event Center.

Team 211 Entertainment CEO Jim Cohan announced that the owners of the Irwindale Event Center property, where the tracks are located, notified officials earlier this week.  

Cohan also noted that Irwindale Event Center will continue to operate “right up to our final weeks” and the full 2017 schedule of NASCAR, Draft Strip, LA Racing Experience events, and special events will run as published.

"I simply want everyone out there to understand that this team is going to work just as hard to keep this a great fan-friendly facility running strong all the way until midnight January 30, 2018,” Cohan said.  

Irwindale Event Center is comprised of a 6000-seat twin track NASCAR stadium that opened in March of 1999 and an NHRA-sanctioned 1/8-mile drag strip that followed a year later. The center is also home to the LA Racing Experience, a popular stock car driving school, as well as Advanced Driving Dynamics, a hands-on safety course taught on the facility's parking lot.

Many other well-known events have called Irwindale home over the years including the X Games, Formula Drift and Global Rallycross, along with concerts, and hundreds of feature film, TV, and commercial shoots, according to officials.
