Small track, poor parking,the food vendors suck and it's not worth the cost. I wouldn't waste my time or money.

No shortage of excitement. But very loud. Food is great. The race track is amazing. There is not a bad seat anywhere. Great place to go on a hot humid night. Bring a blanket to sit on, seating is concrete.

They advertise this place as "The Nations Site of Excitement ". It is. Constant action, skilled drivers, good view, and family safe. Inexpensive admission,good food and fun. The only drawback is the parking lot after the racing ends.
