Adrenaline Rush!

My dad worked at this park until 2004 when he passed away, and I loved every minute of it. I've been to too many races to count and it's always a blast.

We got the track in plenty of time all excited to watch a dirt track race in Texas. Its not that we haven't ever watched a dirt track race before but hey were on vacation so what the heck! Long story short the race never got started because there was lack of drivers/interest. Call before you go, I would definitely... More

If you are a race lover this is the place to go. NHRA finals every March. Friday night local racing and the Winged Sprint dirt oval is awesome. Bring your family, friends or self to enjoy a night of high speeds and excitement.

Bring your eraplugs because this is real live racing - and right up front where the action is! The cost is extremely reasonable and we can't think of a more budget-friendly venue to take the family to. Hot dogs, soda, and beer are only $1.00. The races are genuine and exciting. Chek out the website to find out what races... More

While parking was free it wasnt near to my room. The front desk guy let me check in so early. I thoroughly enjoyed NHRA in April but last day it rained and was very happy to be relaxing in my room. Quite comfy.

We always enjoy going to what is now called Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown. It's good fun. I prefer the oval track racing to the drag racing but both venues are great. Check out the schedule for upcoming events. Bring the whole family (with ear protection!) and enjoy some adrenalin induced excitement.

I attend every year and enjoy all the races. I tell everyone all the time that if they like drag races, this is the place to go. Too bad it only comes once a year!

We took our grandsons to the drag races there, and it was really enjoyable. Be sure not to sit facing the sun, take along ear protection, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Be sure to visit the pit area!

The food at the buffet was fair. Not a large selection and the salads were a bit of a disappointment. Meats were good but not great. Desserts were the highlights. OVerall price versus value was good. The Outlaws concert was outstanding!
