Originally a sleepy, dusty town of citrus orchards and cattle ranches astride Route 66 (now known as Foothill Boulevard) and numerous rail lines, Fontana was radically transformed during World War II by the construction of a steel mill belonging to the Henry J. Kaiser Company and the routing of the San Bernardino Freeway through a section of the town. Explosive growth soon followed, with the area becoming a prominent industrial suburb of San Bernardino. Its working-class orientation, and a population of largely rural Southern, Hispanic, and Midwestern origins, led to the city receiving the derisive nickname Fontucky. This reputation for provincialism was not aided by the rise to prominence of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang, which had originally formed in Fontana. Alternate meanings of Route 66: New Jersey State Highway 66, Interstate 66, and a company named after the route US Highway 66 or Route 66 was and is the most famous road in the United States highway system and quite possibly the most famous and storied highway in the world. ...

Foreign competition and mismanagement led to the closure of the Kaiser Steel plant in the early 1980s, and Fontana and neighboring San Bernardino soon became centers of lower income whites. The production and consumption of methamphetamine and its distribution by the Hells Angels rose during this time. However, Fontana's fortunes improved notably (along with the rest of the cities of the Inland Empire) with the advent of the Southern California real estate boom of the late 1990s and early 2000s. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 128,929, but a July 1, 2002 Census estimate showed the fast-growing city's population at 143,607. The present population is estimated at 183,640 (2007 estimate). The completion of the Foothill Freeway extension in 2003 should contribute to Fontana's increasing prominence as both a bedroom community and a center of industry.

Fontana's principal cultural/entertainment attraction is the California Speedway, a racetrack that plays host to two NASCAR Nextel Cup events a year and various smaller races. It is built on the former site of the Kaiser Steel mill. Some parts of the mill were sold to China, and the rest remains as an operating steel mill.

Fontana is split both economically and socially. The majority of the affluent portion of the population live on the northwest side of the city, and for the most part choose to associate with neighboring cities such as Rancho Cucamonga or Etiwanda.[citation needed] The core of the city, and some southern portions are heavily populated with immigrants, most of them illegal.[citation needed] Portions of the city are in need of redevelopment. Much of this division is arguably caused by an inordinately large number of apartments that were built between 1970 and 1990.[citation needed]

Trivia

  • Gangster Al Capone once had a home in Fontana, which was notable for the initial "C" displayed on one of the home's chimneys. It was rumored that secret passageways/tunnels led from the home to a different part of the city of Fontana, allowing for a quick escape.
  • The Crlenica Brothers’ [pronounced tsir-LEN-itsa], a local Slavic “Tamburitza” musical group, lived in Fontana, had a music store on Arrow Blvd., and played music locally for Fontana's large Slavic population. Unbeknownst to most Fontana residents, they also did some movie work in Hollywood, performing on the soundtrack of "Dr. Zhivago" (Lara’s Theme), and also in the movie “Patton,” in the Russian dance scene.
  • Shelton Brooks, legendary songwriter and bandleader of the early 20th century, spent several decades in his later years living in Fontana. The writer of such hits as ”Darktown Strutters’ Ball” and ”Some of These Days,” he would buy a new Cadillac every year with his songwriter royalties. As a leader of his own successful big band, he hobnobbed with the Hollywood elite and became especially close to torch singer Sophie Tucker, known as “The Last of the Red Hot Mammas.”
  • Whitman Mayo, the actor who played Shady Grady in the TV series “Sanford and Son,” moved with his family from New York City to Fontana in 1967, when he was 37. While living in Fontana he attended Chaffey College in nearby Cucamonga (now called Rancho Cucamonga). He once served as the Grand Marshall in the Fontana Days parade.
  • Pigmy Love Circus has a blazin' song called "Drug run to Fontana" on the album The Power of Beef.
  • Legendary motorcycle builder and innovator Denver Mullins was from Fontana. He started a bike shop, Denver’s Choppers, in San Bernardino in 1967, where he was a pioneer in the building of custom bikes and replacement bike parts. The shop later moved to Henderson, Nevada, just outside Las Vegas, where it still operates to this day, although Denver died in a racing boat accident in 1992.
  • Henry Kaiser’s steel mill in Fontana was the only steel mill west of the Mississippi River. The steel mill scene in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s movie “Terminator 2” was filmed in the abandoned Kaiser Steel Mill.
  • Ro-Val’s automobile museum, located on Foothill Blvd on the western outskirts between Fontana and Cucamonga, was for a while the home for many classic automobiles of the 20’s and 30’s, including a huge vehicle once owned by screen actor Fatty Arbuckle. When the Ro-Val museum closed, the vehicles were sold to Bill Harrah, a Nevada casino owner and automobile collector, who placed them on display in the museum located at his casino.
  • In the 1950’s and 60’s Fontana was home to a famous drag racing strip that was a significant venue in the NHRA circuit. Known officially as Mickey Thompson’s Fontana International Dragway, it was also referred to as Fontana Drag City or just plain old Fontana Drag Strip. The original Fontana strip is long since defunct, but the owners of NASCAR’s new Fontana Raceway will be opening a new NHRA-sanctioned drag strip in Fontana in mid-2006 to resurrect Fontana’s drag-racing heritage. There are some great photos of the original Fontana Drag Strip at the website http://www.mysterion.net/AAFA/socal020.html

The California Speedway is a two-mile, low-banked, D-shaped oval superspeedway in Fontana, California, similar to that of Michigan International Speedway, approximately 40 miles east of Los Angeles on the site of the former Kaiser Steel mill.
After Riverside's closure in 1988, Southern California did not host a NASCAR race from 1988 to 1997, when the new California Speedway was opened.
Like many modern oval tracks, Fontana also features an infield road-course, which has been used by the Grand American Road Racing Association and by the Japanese Grand Touring Car Championship, with the JGTC race being unique in the fact it was a night race.
