Auto Club Speedway: Superbike Family Fun

Family Fun

Thousands of Southern California children and their families participated in the inaugural "Lefty’s Family Fun Day and 5K," a FREE family day and expo with a focus on promoting healthy lifestyles by encouraging physical activity and healthy food choices.

The event was highlighted by a fun, non-competitive 5K run, walk, skate or ride around the 2.36 mile, 21-turn road course that is set-up for the Suzuki AMA Pro SuperBike Challenge this weekend.

After the 5K, participants wearing their 5K bib were admitted FREE to the Suzuki AMA Pro SuperBike Challenge.

In addition to the 5K, families enjoyed fun-filled activities at the Healthy Communities Expo that included a climbing wall, Nutrition Network, a farmer’s market, sports activities and a variety of state, county and local agencies providing information, displays, interactive exhibits and services to help fight childhood obesity.

"Lefty’s Family Fun Day and 5K" is endorsed by Healthy Communities, an initiative supported by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors through the Department of Public Health.

In addition to a full weekend of on-track action of the Suzuki AMA Pro SuperBike Challenge, fans can also enjoy all the off-track activities:

Opportunity, California Motorcycle Expo
Motorcycle enthusiasts will want to peruse the Opportunity, California Motorcycle Expo where bike manufacturers will have their display booths showcasing their 2010 and 2011 models and rider gear.

AMA Pro Riders Autograph Session
Bring your rider memorabilia and have it signed by your favorite AMA Pro Rider at the All-Rider Autograph Session in the infield Garage Sunday, March 28. The autograph session, which will take place at 11:15 p.m. include the stars of AMA Pro Road Racing including the winner of the Daytona 200, Jake Zemke, as well as Josh Hayes, Tommy Hayden and many others.

Motorcycle Fan Lap
Race fans looking for something hands-on, get suited up for the Motorcycle Fan Lap. During lunch time on Sunday, fans can get a piece of the action by purchasing a Motorcycle Fan Lap for only $10.

Amateur riders can get right on the track and ride around the same road course the AMA Pro riders will race on later that day. Fans riding in the Motorcycle Fan Lap must wear a helmet, sign a waiver, and obey speed rules set forth by leaders of the parade laps. Riders must be 18 years or older.

Pit Passes
Get access to Pit Road by adding $20 to your admission ticket. Fans that purchase a Pit Pass will get up-close and personal to riders and their teams and will have the exclusive opportunity to walk the grid during Opening Ceremonies. Pit Passes are great for each family member to enjoy, since there are no age requirements.
