(Feb. 9, 2011) – Auto Club Speedway joins the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation commemorating the 100th birthday of the 40th President of the United States of America, Ronald Reagan. Through a series of programs and celebratory events around the world, the life and legacy of a global leader will be remembered.
The year-long Ronald Reagan Centennial is supported by the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation which was founded by President Reagan himself to preserve and promote his legacy of inspired freedom.
