The third weekend of every month brings what I consider one of the best recreation bargains in Southern California. That's when the Willow Springs Motorcycle Club stages two full days of motorcycle road racing at the Willow Springs International Raceway, tucked against a hillside near here on the northern flank of the Antelope Valley, about 75 miles from Los Angeles. For $10 per person (kids under 7 are free), you can spend the whole weekend at the track as a spectator.

Bowing to pressure from local residents and city officials, directors of the Antelope Valley Fair voted Thursday to reject a promoter's plan to host weekly stock-car racing at the fairgrounds in Lancaster. Acton-based promoter Jeff Zee sought permission to install a 3/8-mile oval clay track and other improvements at the fair's outdoor arena at a cost of about $500,000.
