For $30, today's deal gets you two adult tickets to the Sokola Shootout, plus two meals, at the Perris Auto Speedway (a $60 value) in Perris. The event is at 7 p.m. on March 12.
Located on the entertainment-rich grounds of the Lake Perris Fairgrounds, the Perris Auto Speedway has housed an 8,000-seat temple to transmissions and high-octane action since 1996. When the half-mile clay oval track hosts the Sokola Shootout––with USAC/CRA Sprint cars and California Lighting Sprints––it will be a night full of roaring engines, fast laps, and the manly musk of combustion-engine fumes. Races feature a field of open-wheeled automobiles piloted by drivers protected only by their wits and a roll cage.
As death-defying drivers complete laps, hungry fans race to their bellies' finish lines with quarter-pound cheeseburgers, french fries, and drinks—included for each Groupon ticket-holder (a $20 value). Following each race, the public can venture into the pits to meet drivers and watch crews make repairs.
Perris Auto Speedway's massive venue gives fans a solid view of the entire track from all vantage points. Competing with the engine thunder, the track pumps out 60,000 watts of audio so announcers can be heard above the action and hotdog vendors can perfect pantomime skills. A Relay for Life event, the Sokola Shootout helps raise funds for the American Cancer Society and will offer lucky race fans the opportunity to win a bevy of giveaways.
