Nice venue for the Lucas Oil Drag Boat races. We came on Sunday morning and there was still trash all over the stands and in the bathrooms and on the bridge over from the previous day. I do think this should have been cleaned up....More

Been to many great events at this Raceway, it can get hot, so bring lots of water and sunscreen. pay parking in the lot, no other parking around, which is fine. Depending on your event, you can sometimes get cheap tickets in the parking lot,...More

Spent the weekend at this race park for the NHRA Winter Nationals - the facility was clean, and very capable of handling such a huge event. Had tickets to the P3 Section, row B 10-11 and they were just like being down on the track...More
