My 8 year old son loves going here. We went 3 times this summer. The 2nd time was the fireworks night which was a spectacular show. The night finished with the school bus derby. So much fun. Last night was our last trip for the summer & it was monster truck night. Noise: Make sure young kids have headsets or... More

I've been here with my family before and I've had fun. It's cool but the prices are unbelievable. It's 30 dollars to get in and the parking is always full. I would go back but I suggest,if you do go, to bring a lot of cash.

I was quoted $25 as an entrance fee for adults. No where on the web site or when I called did they state they did not take credit or debit cards. You get to the gate and they tell you the entrance fee is $30 and no cards, but they have an ATM that costs $4. What a rip off!... More

We've been coming here for many years. My husband is handicapped. The parking lots are paved. We park in the first parking lot which is more handicap friendly/closer walk. There are handicap accessible bathrooms. Yes there is one that has a few steps up a platform but that is only one bathroom facility & not handicap accessible-others are very handicap... More

Went to see a friend of ours race Enduro - what fun we had! Noisy, loud, dirty - but what a blast. Check out the schedule - there is a lot going on here.

This is a really great racetrack to visit. Well run, a little run down, could use some updating for service stands and bathrooms. Nice variety of entertainment throughout the year. Is very pricey for a family to go that is my major draw back. would go alot more if price was more affordable.

You really have o be able to take loud noise. I wouldn't bring children without ear protection. I like the racing more than the bus derby. Limited snack/beverage options so keep that in mind when planning a visit.

Like going to the Brooklyn Cyclones, or some Triple A or Double A farm team of a major league club, Riverhead offers a tantalizing glimpse into what real professional stock car racing must be. The track is tiny, the engines are loud enough for ear plugs (or I’m just a wuss noise wise), and every seat in the small grandstands... More

I am a car guy. I love a day at the races, but the horrible condition of all their facilities severely detracted from our family day at the races. The place is falling apart. First of all the parking lot is a sand pit in many places. I watched several cars get stuck. Handicapped parking was full and I had... More
