Event Info


Chuckwalla Valley Raceway is located at 25300 Rice Rd Desert Center, CA  92239 just off Interstate 10 near Desert Center.

There is a $10 GATE FEE for your first day entrance + $5 for each additional day ($10/1-day, $15/20days, $20/-3days).

Although the schedule is subject to change at any time, generally the day will run smoothest for you if you show up at the track by 6:50am. Check-in typically begins at 7:00am and ends at 7:45am.  Our RED group drivers meeting will start at 7:45 and cars will go on track at 8am. This meeting is MANDATORY for all drivers unless you have received prior clearance to miss it.  PLEASE SHOW UP AT REGISTRATION NO LATER THAN 7:15am if you do not want to potentially miss your first run session of the day.  When you arrive at the track, please go straight to registration inside the large building BEFORE unloading your car.  Note that there is a $10/person gate fee charged to everyone, including spectators.

The event schedule will be provided at registration when you check-in.

FOOD & DRINK: Speed Ventures provides a water dispenser with which you can refill your water bottle, canteen, cup, or camel.  Please bring something to the track to drink with.  The snack bar will be open for breakfast (I recommend the breakfast burrito) and lunch.

LODGING: We have 2 host hotels in Indio for this event: the Best Western Date Tree ( which is offering a Speed Ventures rate of $99.99 plus tax and the Indio Travelodge ( which has a special Speed Ventures rate of $59.50 plus tax.  Since this is high season in the Palm Springs region, there are a limited number of rooms available at each hotel and we expect these discounted rooms to sell out.  Don't wait to make your reservation.

Either a TOW HOOK or some TOW POINT is mandatory on the FRONT (and optional on REAR) of your car before going out on track.  The important thing is that you have a place picked out for the FRONT that we can hook on to in order to tow you off track.  Please determine appropriate tow points - it is your responsibility and we will not be responsible for any damage done to your car.

CAR NUMBERS are required.  We will have tape available at the track for making numbers.  Your numbers must be at least 8" tall, located on both sides and the back of your vehicle.  You should use the number you signed up with.  If you would like to change it, please notify us at registration.

The TECH FORM is a must-have at the event. Be sure to print it out, fill it out before the event, and bring it with you to registration:

There is also a track event checklist available if you're not sure what you should bring:

Dry CAMPING is available. Hook ups are not provided. Dump stations and water are available, as are bathrooms, but no showers. In addition to the $10/person entrance fee (+$5 for each additional day), there is a $15/vehicle security & overnight fee for campers, plus $5 for each additional night. Gates close at 9pm and will reopen the following morning by 7:am.
