Update on "Resurrection Wall" and Re-build of track VIP Tower

We have replaced just about everything lost in the fire this past off season. We are still waiting on a few things to arrive.
Thank you donors! As soon as all the building permits are approved, construction will begin on replacing the VIP tower and your name plate will be placed on the “Resurrection Wall.”

Donations can still be made here at FriendsofFamoso.com.

Again, Thank you to all those who have donated. We look forward to re-building and seeing your name plate on our “Resurrection Wall” for a long time to come.


Your donation of $100 will go to Auto Club Famoso Raceway and be put right to use in getting our facility back up and running. In exchange for your generosity, we will place a 4×6 plate with your name, city, and/or state engraved on it. These plates will be mounted to “Resurrection Wall” on the back of the timing/VIP tower.

If you’d like to donate more than $100, you can purchase as many “donation vouchers” as you like. Each plate can be customized or if you just want 1 plate, just let us know by putting “just one plate” in the additional plate fields.

Every penny generated beyond the cost of producing and mounting these plates will go towards the repair or replacement of property at Auto Club Famoso Raceway.

We will be posting updates and progress images on this site.


Re-Building Progress

The rubble has been scavenged through and there wasn’t much to be salvaged. A penny and a iPhone that managed to survive with little damage. But other than that, most everything valuable is headed to the scrap/recycle heap.

The area has been scraped clean and all the demo done to the damaged areas. Mark took a walk around with a 360 camera. You can check out the video here.

Thank you to Tony Franco and the Muy Caliente Jet car family for helping us start the rebuilding. We have such a long way to go but with friends like this and many others we will get through this. The first 2 containers are on their way to the site.
