“A nice place to see old cars race!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Usually on Sunday nights with old cars that race around, along with figure 8 and sometimes with a demolition derby! Used to spend a lot of time here right after I graduated high school in the late 60's!

“Noise, cars, smell of the race track, what's not to like.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Just a great way to entertain the kids or whomever. Worth trying even if you aren't into racing. If you like fried food, you love the food stands. Lots of racing excitement for the buck. Stands are close to the track and there's usually some special something or other to get a laugh out of. Only bad thing is sometimes the parking can be a pain when everyone leaves at one time.

“Great place at a decent price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

The show this place puts on every Sunday night in the summer is amazing! Special event are always spectacular as well, often on Friday's and holidays. I'm a big racing fan, and while I like NASCAR on TV, there is nothing like seeing it in person. This is a smaller track, about 1/4 mile, but the action is pretty impressive. The racers are all local drivers who take a lot of pride in their cars and their driving. The competition on the track is fierce, but in the pits afterwards everyone seems to be good friends. When you go, do make sure to stay after and visit the pits to meet the drivers and see the cars.

Depending on the night it's $12-$15 to get in for an adult, when you consider that the events are normally about 4 hours it actually seems like a good deal.
