“E xciting!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This is a fun night out with great value and great food. With a ticket only costing $12.00 it was a great value. You are almost sitting on the track with the cars which really adds to the excitment. The food was an excellent value and very tasty. Track employees were very friendly and really made you feel welcome. Overall this was a 5 star night out from 5:00 until 11:30. A definite place to go again and again!!!!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

being use to going to Hawkeye Downs Cedar Rapids, Iowa this was truly a surprise. Great races and too bad the local airport who leases them the ground is forcing their rent up so much that they will have to close. Racing does not get any state or federal assistance. so please help them keep this track open. great family times. i certainly have fond memories from my childhood. quality racing. love it. thank you

“Just a fun night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

You do not need to be a knowledgeable race fan it is just a fun night out under the stars and if you enjoy racing for the thrill and noise then stop on over on Saturday night.

Plus if you are a people watcher like I am then you will find it quite interesting there are people from all walks of life!
