  • Nice variety of sponsor tents before the race, and plenty souvenir trucks, too. We had pit passes, and it was fun to walk on the track, sign the start finish line, see the pit stalls and the garage...  more »
  • Great race venue and a wide variety of races for every fan. I really enjoy the demolition derby, they are teams now where growing up they were individuals, but you can root for your team all summer...  more »
  • I must say the best part of today was the team that helped us. Professional , great attitudes, very uplifting for sure. From the front desk to the track team it was a great experience overall. Easy to see how much this team cares and loves their work. AWESOME JOB EVERYONE !!!!!!!!!!
  • Decent venue for it's purpose. Went for Saturday races so it was pretty empty. Was real happy that parking was free. Food options are okay. Lots of stairs to get to the upper level.
