Buttonwillow Raceway Track

Buttonwillow Raceway Park is a motorsports park in Kern County, California, 10 miles (16 km) north of the town of Buttonwillow and 28 miles (45 km) northwest of Bakersfield. Owned and operated by the California Sports Car Club, a region of SCCA, Buttonwillow is the "flagship" track of Cal Club, and is also the location of the Club's administrative offices.
Located in the central part of California, Buttonwillow Raceway is approximately 4–5 hours' drive from San Francisco and San Diego, and approximately two hours from Los Angeles. It is located 1⁄2 miles (0.80 km) west of Interstate 5 on Lerdo Highway, and its main feature - the race control tower - can be seen from at least two miles (3 km) going either direction on the interstate. When events are held here, most stay either in RVs, fifth-wheel trailers or the specially-constructed worker compound (or "worker village") on the track grounds, or in the hotels on Highway 58 in Buttonwillow itself.
