Great racing on a great track, we were there 3 nights and the final nights feature was a dustbowl so that was disapointing, stands were cramped in, need to make a tad more room for people, they threw out our drinks weren't allowed to take anything in other than water, thought that was poor, food was ordinary not many options...

Gold Cup Fever in September, Hot ! Don't go to speedway before 5pm. Try to get seats with your back to the sun. Take a cushion. Heaps of eateries and drinks stands. Heaps of Fan memorabilia for sale. Great little race track...take sunnies or eye protection...very dusty

While in Chico, California, I decided to take in a night of racing at this well known track. Then cost of a ticket to get in was only $11.00 for a seniors ticket. That was dirt cheap, especially for the quality of entertainment that you received. Everything was very well organized. The drivers knew when to line up for the... More

Having a background in racing, I might be prejudiced, but this speedway puts on a great show for dirt track followers. The Gold Cup races every September with the 410 outlaw sprint cars are rated as one of the top 3 races in the country for this type of car racing. Kept clean and family oriented it is a fun... More

Wonderful way to spend a summer Friday evening watching all kinds of racing with great crowds. Easy to relax and enjoy the show these talented drivers give each week. Gets a bit dirty with the dirt flying as the drivers speed around the track but it washes off!

I have been to this track about 1000 times over my life in Chico and never once have I been disappointed. I have seen everything from sprints to monster trucks to bicycles here. I have memories of racing my BMX around the dirt oval when I was a kid. If you like racing you will be glad you went. I... More

Yep, if you like to sit close to the track, keep your drink covered--when those racers zip by, on those banked curves, that dirt track will try to getcha! Other than that it is a lot of fun-- bring the kids (earplugs?), they will love it, everyone pick a racer to cheer on. Makes it more fun. Silver dollar is... More

It is a very fast tight banked clay track. The World of Outlaws racers make it to Chico to race on it and the local boys put on a pretty good show every week.
