The 12th annual Coronado Speed Festival will take place on September 26th and 27th, 2009. This Fleet Week San Diego event is the only race car and military tribute event in the United States.
The Coronado Speed Festival is Fleet Week San Diego’s marquee event. The event features fast-paced, thrilling auto racing and exhibitions for car enthusiasts of all ages at one of the most distinctive race track locations – Naval Air Station North Island, the birthplace of Naval Aviation. Nowhere else can you see a variety of cars racing on a live runway used by the U.S. Navy. This is the only Navy Open House on the West Coast. The event is a great way to not only thank the men and women who defend our freedom, but to also enjoy a weekend of fast-paced activity on the tarmac.
At the Coronado Speed Festival you will see top race cars from today & tomorrow including historic stock cars, as well as the restored classics from years past. Also planned are military flyovers, drifting & drag racing exhibitions, car club corral, car show, Navy ship tours and more.
The Coronado Speed Festival is free for active duty military and their dependants. For more information, visit www.fleetweeksandiego.org.
