When you first enter the gates of our event you walk into our packed car corral (Sat & Sun) where you are treated to a wide variety of cars on display from local car clubs and owners. Then move onto our vendor row, showcasing local and national vendors and souvenirs. From there you can access our open grandstand seating, concession stands, and our open paddocks. Once you are in the paddocks feel free to get up close looks at the race cars and talk to the drivers and crew. If you bring your family be sure to bring a camera, as many drivers will invite youngsters to sit in their race cars! When in the paddock, be sure to stay alert and follow the instruction of our paddock volunteers who will caution you when race cars are approaching. We also offer our attendees an opportunity to view the racing from the infield. During appointed track crossing times in between races you can dash over to the infield to spend the day or catch a few races. From vantage points that look over the hairpin turns, or the tall grandstands what will afford views of the 180 degree turn 9, straightaway and more.
Our spectators LOVE coming to this event because we offer so much variety, access and excitement! We can’t wait to see you this Friday, July 1st – Sunday, July 3rd, 2018!
