(based on an all day or night visit eating more than once).One of the nicer drag strips that I have been to, bring ear plugs and a cushion to sit on. There is plenty of bleacher seats with excellent... More

From June to Sept. this raceway has demolition derby nights once a month. Its a lot of fun to take kids too. The seating is grandstand style with metal benches that are not supper comfortable but have a back support - they are long benches. Gates open at 4:00pm for a 7:30pm race time so get there early to claim... More

Great location great family outing.. The announcers make this even better, with all their excitement. With the breaks between events, it gives you time to hit the refreshment stands.. Fun for all ages..

Recommend for almost any age, u might want the bring ear protection for the... More

I did not see a race here, I was in Joliet for a day for genealogy and decided to stop her for photography. The track makes for good photography and has a great location right across the street from the Chicagoland Speedway.

This is a horseshoe type of facility. Loud, smoky and hot. Perfect if you are a fan of drag racing. Bathrooms are good. Concessions are average. People are nice. A lot of vendors in the stands selling beer and water. No food. Bought my tickets ahead of time and paid $25 more for tailgate parking just so I would be... More
