This is the first I've been to any sort of racing event and I enjoyed it immensely. It's quite loud, so you may want to bring ear plugs. This place is very family friendly and a great activity for a summer night on the weekend....More

We try to travel to the area so we can visit Beech Ridge at least once each summer. It's a fun, family friendly place with entertaining events for a low price. Our kids have always loved our nights spent at Beech Ridge, especially Car Wars.

Over the decades I have been here many times. Each time was just a fun as the time before. One should go here at least once.

We went to Beech Ridge on a Thursday so it was a different kind of show for the regular race fan. Very family oriented. The races were done in about two hours. Only $7 for adults to get in. The food was a little pricey...More

Beech Ridge Speedway has been here since the 1940s. The track is fast for a clay/oil track. A fun time on a Saturday night.

The venue is pretty nice. Try to go early to each event to safe a good spot. You'll want about half way up and near a stairway path. The "bleachers" are all wood. Bring a pillow or blanket. Be aware that anything you drop will...More

I recommend ear plugs or muffs. Not headphones that you listen music with. Something to help block out the sounds. Especially for kids under 12 or so. IMO.

As far as I know, no. I haven't heard of any events where you're allowed to just drive a car for fun. There are a lot of regulations to meet to be a driver.
