The excitement of Land Speed Racing at El Mirage, CA is a wonderful way to spend time with family and friends. Whether you're racing or spectating, there's plenty to see and do!

Goodyear Land Speed Update
With the 2021 purchase of Cooper Tire, Goodyear also acquired Mickey Thompson Tires and Wheels. Both companies have a long and storied past in many avenues of racing, especially when it comes to land speed. As the integration between the two companies has progressed, the decision has been made to move forward with only one brand.
Goodyear will continue to produce its existing land speed catalog, as well as sizes previously offered in the Mickey Thompson lineup. Land speed racers will be able to purchase any tire size they’ve previously raced, and all tires will be produced at the Goodyear manufacturing facility in Akron, Ohio.
Goodyear and Mickey Thompson engineering have conducted growth analysis for both tire lineups. Growth rates at speed between both brands are similar, therefore there is no concern at this time that a racer previously running a Mickey Thompson, will have any issues in transitioning to a Goodyear tire.
Existing Mickey Thompson land speed tires are still available for purchase until inventory is depleted.

Helmets with a SNELL rating of SA2010, M2010 and helmet certified to FIA8860-2009 expired on January 1 , 2022. (Rule Book sections 3.A.2 and 7.C.1). Also E.C.E. 22.05 motorcycle helmets manufactured before 2011 have expired.
Given the current supply chain issue, we strongly recommend you check the date codes on your helmet and, if necessary, order a replacement early.
NOTE: Most new helmets are dimensionally larger to meet the higher protection requirements in the new standards. We advise you to check the fit of the new helmet inside the roll cage structure of your vehicle. Rule 3.B.1 requires "a front hoop of the roll cage shall be at least three (3) inches in front of the driver while the driver is in his normal driving position."
