Great location for the drag races. Parking can be muddy and the walk alittle tiresome but it's good family fun! Pack s cooler without glass though it's super pricey.

I have been to several races at CMS and the atmosphere and hospitality make it probably my favorite, but I'd not done the track tour before. For $12, there are senior citizen and military discounts, it was a bargain for the fun we had. I...More
