Announcing the 6th Annual Salute the Military Race Day Event!


Armed Forces Day – On Saturday, May 17th the 6th Annual "Barona Race Day Salute to the Military" will be hosted! The past 5 years have been such a success for our military families and local drag racers that we are back for another exciting year of racing! Military families will be treated to an experience that you cannot find anywhere else in San Diego. Barona Race Track offers a 1/8 Mile Drag Strip where all the action will take place.

This is a special event for military families who live in Lincoln Military Housing. These "spectators" will be treated to lunch, additional snacks, children's activities, T-shirts, a family photo and much more all for FREE.

There will be a ceremony held to Salute the Military and their family members for their support and sacrifice.  More details to be announced.

"I cannot thank Lincoln enough for putting on this event.  My husband just returned from deployment and this was the perfect opportunity to spend the day as a family and have some fun.  Thank you for taking care of everything including lunch.  We really appreciate the family photo to capture this special memory," the Biggs Family, 2012 event attendee.

Big Announcement: Every year a military non-profit is chosen to be the beneficiary for this event.Last year, $20,590.78 was donated to the Navy SEAL Foundation.
