“Way In Need Of A Facelift”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Citrus County Speedway should start with a new and catchy name. Citrus County Speedway is outdated and absolutely non-profitable. I would sell the name to a large company. Name it Hostess Ho-Ho Speedway (just kidding), but you get the idea. Tropicana pays big bucks for naming rights of the Ray's stadium. Secondly, get a new sign outside so potential patrons can get excited about upcoming events. That sign with the plastic letters from the 70's is neither functional or eye catching. It directly reflects whats inside the gates. A 1970's style raceway in need of repair and some sponsors. The races are gaining fewer participants, and my guess is that management is doing a poor job of recruiting drivers and pricing to participate is likely limiting their ability to run every week.
The races are still a good night out for the family even if it is a step back in time. It's a great piece of property and a nice location. It just need some owners willing to make it pop and turn a profit.
If it rains, the parking lot becomes a mud bog.

“Don't miss the Demolition Derby”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

On a lark we decided to take in the Demolition Derby one summer night, and it was a blast! More fun than staying in the RV watching DVDs ... and an interesting place to observe Southern "redneck" culture and traditions!
