How did California end up in the Southwest. If you want to do this split the state and add NorCal to Oregon and Washington. Heck California is 800+ miles (I-5) north to south and 200 miles (I-80) west to east. We need a forum to fit our diverse home state. A state with Hollister 1947, Gilroy Hill Climb, Laguna Seca GP, Infineon Raceway, Little Dragon (Hwy 49), the first stadium motocross, and many others that can't be remembered this late at night. CA all the way!
