Stayed at the Holiday Inn and we could hear loud engines roaring so we went to check it out. Small track but lots of parking and the races were very quick to get going-very little times between which was great!

Nostaglia, if you like harness racing put this on your stops, a lot of historic events including amateur driving since the 1890's. Part of Hollywood slots, a must on a harness racing fans bucket list
