Honestly, if you are making this a truly DG-oriented trip, you need to skip Bakersfield. Instead, keep going on I-15 South to I-210 and hit Pasadena (Oak Grove, first course ever) and Sylmar (Veteran's Park, home of the Ricos/Legacy Discs). You could still hit Bakersfield on the way back up north...
