Join us on the weekend of July 25-27 for Car Craft's annual road trip with the readers as we travel south to San Diego County for a cruise night and drag racing.
Make plans to meet with us at Classic Performance Products' new corporate headquarters in Placentia for shop tours and lunch, starting at 10:00 on Friday the 25th. Following lunch provided by CPP, we will depart CPP at about noon and drive to Escondido via a scenic route mixing some interstate driving and two lane roads near Lake Matthews and in the Palomar Mountain State Park. The official route is available here and will be handed out at CPP.
Cruisin' Grand Avenue in downtown Escondido begins around 4:30 pm on Friday. The featured guests for this evening will be American Nostalgia West A/FX and Super Stock cars.
On Saturday morning, we are planning an approximately 3 hour drive beginning in Ramona CA and traveling around to Julian and the Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, ending in enough time for drivers to gather their stuff to get to Barona 1/8-mile Drag Strip for a Test & Tune session which runs from 2:00 to 10:00 pm Saturday July 27. Feel free to join us on the drive, or sleep in and just meet us at Barona. The American Nostalgia West group is having a $1,000 shootout, so there will be plenty of A/FX wheels-up action at the track.
The Car Craft Staff will be driving back to Los Angeles Sunday Morning.
Though an RSVP isn't necessary, we'd appreciate an approximate head count. That helps CPP and Cruisin' Grand know what to expect! So please visit our message board and let us know what you're driving and how many people you're bringing.
