While staying in Old Orchard Beach with our grandson; we were looking for things to do in the area and came across the Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, ME. I hadn’t been to a stock car race in many years and had forgotten how much fun they can be. We went a little early to watch some of the... More

What a classic little 1/3 mile race track. People bring their families and enjoy a fun night of very eclectic people, greasy food, and amazing people-watching. Oh, and there is very competitive local car racing, with many people carrying on a family tradition through generations of racing. Who could resist Thursday Thunder, Day of Destruction, Car Wars, and NASCAR nights?... More

This place has been around for over 50 years. I can remember Saturday nights in the summer, driving in from Sebago Lake. What a treat for the whole family. Something different to do than the Old Orchard beach pier.

Back in the day, I went to a few races at the speedway (in other states including Daytona) along with watching a show of Monster trucks. It has been eons since I have been to a race and my ears are more tender now so I would suggest to anyone who has sensitive ears to bring earphones or earplugs. Do... More

A great evenings entertainment if you like the smell and noise of the race track. Parking is right outside the track and food and drink is available inside. Great family entertainment with RV/camper parking available.

10 bucks for a full evening of great entertainment, there is no better deal anywhere. I was in South Portland for a good size job this past weekend and brought a crew of 8 guys. We stayed in Scarborough at The Extended Stay Hotel. We had all gotten up at 3:00 A.M. and worked physically hard all day. Our mission... More

Went to Beech Ridge for the PASS tour event on July 6th. Arrived shortly after the 6:00 start time so we missed the first PASS heat race - it's great to go to a track that pays attention to the advertised start time. The races were run without delay, intermission was only 10 minutes. The whole program was completed by... More

I love NASCAR and I had friends that race at the track and love going there to watch them. I usually go every year and watch. I love the place and would love to go every weekend!

I was surprised. I was not a person who would normally like this sort of thing, but the energy and excitement of the race was really fun.
