If you have nothing to do this is a fun to watch the local talent. Typical small town race track. Would be better if they offered more classes. They dropped the Legend Car series and only run a few classes last time I visited. It is a vary small track and a bit off the beaten path. The kids will... More

The walkways were filled with kids running around. Food is just typical stadium food. But the experience was good just a little dirty (especially the bathrooms)

The one thing I really dislike is that people smoke on the bleachers so that wasn't pleasant for my allergies or my children. Other than that we had a great time, food is reasonable bathrooms are clean which is... More

It is what it is, a race track. Dress for the weather and bring money for food and drinks. Hot chocolate is a must if you go when it's cold.

This race track is tucked up in Painesville, OH just outside Perry. It has 1/5 mile track, slight banked. The bleachers are nice and feel safe. good food, affordable. Very clean restrooms!!! Affordable gate prices. You are up close to the action here, so I recommend ear plugs!!! They have a family sitting section which is no beer, smoking or... More

For as long as I can remember, I have loved coming to Lake County Speedway! This is a GREAT place for a fun night. It's not that expensive, and it's just a lot of fun to watch the racers. If you come regularly, you'll develop your favorites, and begin cheering for them! It's very family oriented (though if you have... More

OK now this is not NasCar, but honestly for a warm Saturday night for a couple of bucks, this place is fun. The crazy eight and the demolition derby is the best. Very family oriented, easy to get to, lots of parking (although grass parking). Just a good time for all. The funny car night is also one of the... More

Good clean racing just about every class you could think of and when the cars are not on the track they keep the mood going getting the young and the old involved

Banner night at Lake County Speedway tonight was disappointing... The nicest unique banner did not win. It was truly not a banner contest .. It was only a driver popularity contest! The racing is fun to see..., but the announcing is awful.. Bring back Mr Kelly - he was awesome !!
