“...um....WOW!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

If you happen to find yourself in Pomona and have some time to burn, be sure to walk into the Wally Parks museum. Wally was the founder of drag racing and its earliest aspects of safety, so this museum is a must see if you like cars and drag racing as a whole. There are full displays of the actual cars that ran back in the 50's and right up into today. If you can imagine it, you will see it at the museum.
Do yourself a favor and drop in for a peek. I planned just to glance, and walked out two hours later.

Just FYI...if you have ever seen the trophy that is given to drag racers who win national events, its a bronze statue of a man standing next to a drag slick tire.....the man is Mr. Wally Parks.

If you are into drag racing....GO! Lots of super cool nostalgia stuff, and right close to the race track. In fact! Park there and take the tram to the track!!
