“Fun family evenings entertainment”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

Running from May to the end of August on most Thursday evenings at 6.30 and some weekends this quarter mile oval features budding NASCAR drivers in a variety of different classes. The event is run very slickly with he next race already on track as the victor takes his victory lap. Great fun plenty of spectacle, incident and only $10 for an adult . Money well spent give it a try for true all American entertainment.

“Slick action packed quarter mile speedway”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

Had to call in here as on holiday in the area. Venue runs. 20 or so events from May to end of August on most Thursday evenings and some weekend events for everything from rough riders (bangers) up to late model powerful US cars. They have several short heats of 12 laps (3 miles) to qualify for the feature finals. As soon as one race has finished the next are being led out . Great fun to watch as the cars slide around with plenty of incidents to keep even the less petrol headed types interested. Starting at 6.30 the event was over soon after 9pm. The feature race we saw was won by the Vermont state Lieutenant Govemor and the the local Mayor second in another event. A super way to spend an evening and very reasonably priced too $10 for adults $3 for children. Check it out on their website.
