Located in the central part of California, Buttonwillow Raceway is approximately a four- to five-hour drive from San Francisco and San Diego, and approximately two hours from Los Angeles. It is located 12 mile (0.80 km) west of Interstate 5 on Lerdo Highway, and its main feature – the race control tower – can be seen from at least two miles (3 km) going either direction on the interstate. When events are held here, most stay either in RVs, fifth-wheel trailers or the specially-constructed worker compound (or "worker village") on the track grounds, or in the hotels on Highway 58 in Buttonwillow itself.
