Trióvalo Bernardo Obregón was a three-quarter-mile tri-oval in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Named after the driver Bernardo Obregón Tamaríz who died in the Carrera Panamericana in 1999 during the Mil Cumbres Stage,.[1]

The tri-oval was the venue for NASCAR Corona Series races from 2004 to 2010. For the 2011 season, the track was excluded for NASCAR schedule because of the damage in the track.[2]

As of 2013, the track is in complete dismay, The track surface is unusable as a motorsports venue without being resurfaced and the stands are unsafe for spectators after sitting unused and not maintained since late 2010.
