What about Riverside? The show is in Jurupa Valley but it says Riverside Nationals?
The car show and Rubidoux High School are located within the city of Jurupa Valley. Prior to July 2011, Rubidoux High School was located within unincorporated Riverside, and in the community of Rubidoux. Many locals and alumni still refer to the area as Riverside or Rubidoux, hence the reason behind the car show name. According to the United States Postal Office it is Jurupa Valley, however, we still call it Riverside.
