This is the only racetrack on Long Island. I'm a fan of the enduro cars. Very very exciting nail biting entertainment. Races are also fun. Not as long or corporate as NASCAR. Just a great time!

A whole lot of family fun for a reasonable cost. I think the school bus demo, figure 8 races and midget races are most amusing for children. It's a small track so when there is a race, especially in the modifies be prepared to sit...More
