The almond trees are in full bloom, which in Kern County means the smell of nitromethane will soon be waiting through the air at Famoso Drag Strip.

Famoso Dragstrip’s Six Race Championship Series concluded a season of competitions with points races this past Saturday and Sunday. The weekend concluded with champions crowned as both new and experienced racers made their mark on the dragstrip’s history.

In a weekend packed with high-octane excitement, the Famoso Dragstrip was alive with the roar of 200 cars, as competitors vied for supremacy across six classes. We saw everything from nail-biting finishes to exceptional performances, with four classes commanding particular attention.
