POMONA, CA — The Automobile Club of Southern California, the largest affiliate of the AAA, has signed an agreement to become the presenting sponsor of the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum in Pomona, Calif., according to museum officials.
The Auto Club sponsorship includes a specially designated Automobile Club of Southern California area inside the Museum that will feature a permanent display of historic racing memorabilia.

“Southern California motorists and the Auto Club have grown up together,” said Thomas McKernan Jr., president and CEO of the Auto Club. “This region’s development has been influenced significantly by the automobile.
