  • Summer time Racing fun. A local New England small track. Check schedule for racing and flea market on web site.
  • One of my annual multiple visit places to see open wheel modifieds race on the fast and wide asphault oval. Ample seating and there's not a bad seat anywhere at the facility.
  • A forgotten gem. I haven't been back here in quite some time. My grandparents once used to frequent this place every weekend, until my grandfather passed away a couple years ago. I haven't been here since I was with them last. Things are still the same and the people that attend are still friendly as ever. We had a blast watching tonight's (Wednesday) races / qualifiers. I'm looking forward to making more appearances this summer, now that I've at least made it once. Great place for something to do on a summer day!
  • Been coming here since I was a kid always great racing. Family friendly and lots of fun!
  • The best Flea Market around. Good amount of vendors. A good mix of things you might actually buy.
