FONTANA, Calif. — PizzaOvens.com and sponsors will attempt to break the record for the  Longest Pizza at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana by making a 7,000′ (1.3 miles) pizza on Saturday, June 10, 2017. The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and is free to the public.

Pizza assembly will begin from outside of turn 3 of the legendary NASCAR oval track along the tram route to the fan zone where a designated area will be sectioned off for the public to watch the pizza cook.
