In his heyday, Lefty Turner ruled the ovals and road courses. He owned Victory Lane. He was THE toast of the motorsports world. Today, nothing has changed. He's still number one when it comes to all things racing and the perfect mascot for Southern California's premier motorsports facility — Auto Club Speedway and Auto Club Speedway's "Kid's Club". His mission is simple — show kids the excitement, thrill and exhilaration of racing through community events, education and just plain fun. Whether he's at a local school kicking off his "Reading Challenge" program, or getting his fitness on at his "Lefty's Family Fun Day and 5K," fun seems to always follow Lefty. No wonder his pit crew is always close by. After all, it's amusing, enjoyable and entertaining when race weekend rolls around and Lefty and his Crew take over the town.
