Inland speedway adjusts

I recently completed a cross-country train trip, that began and ended with Metrolink service (Montlclair to LA's Union Station in July, and the reverse trip in August upon our return). Metrolink is a convenient way to get to selected places - not only downtown L.A. (which allows you to go to Hollywood, or Chicago), but also to the Los Angeles County Fair via a special stop that's set up at Fair time.

But car racing enthusiasts won't get to use a special Metrolink service during the October race. Why? Economics:

"But with the current economic downturn, there is very little demand for a service, no matter how convenient, that charges between $20 and $35 per person to ride the train, especially when on-site parking is free and plentiful. It just doesn't make sense."
