I have been going to Seekonk Speedway for many years. This is a great place to watch local drivers compete for great prices. Well Worth Going to.

I have been going to Seekonk Speedway for years. I used to work therer summers and then race there when I was young. It has always been a good time both watching the races and the people.
This is a traditional track in the best sence of the word. Lighted night races make sitting in the bleachers cooler during those hot summer nights. Several racing series contribute to an exciting even... read more »
Good old American fun. Get your tickets online so it's one less line to stand in. Lost of friendly people at the track though, always have fun waiting in line because everyone has a story. Fast cars, crashes and the occasional car-B-Q. The food is surprisingly good, everything you would expect, burgers, dogs, fries and chicken fingers but add pulled pork sandwiches, clam chowder and crab cakes. Ice cold beer, Del's and plenty of refreshments and snacks. Get a stadium seat back for $3 and kick back and watch the mayhem. Bring sun screen and try to sit just to the right of the tower it's the only shade in the seating area besides the stretch near turn 3 and 4. You are allowed to bring in six pack size coolers and they are now allowing backpacks and large carry bags. No alcohol or bottles are allowed to be brought into the track, they have police checking all bags at the gate. Sometimes they won't let you bring in your D & D coffee or ice coffee so be prepared to either chug or toss. Be prepared for the smell of burning rubber and brush up on your line dancing as the commentators likes to get the kids down to the wall to dance the electric slide and other line dances.
Great Saturday night racing, as well as stuff like Open wheel Wednesday, and now the NASCAR Tour Mod race, the ACT race, VMRS, and the pro stock/slm race
Prices have been raised to much. It's hard to take my family now. Races have been cut down. No longer a fun experience.
For 20 bucks had an amazing fun time. Rent the high back seat for 3 bucks. Added bonus is you can bring a small cooler with food and beverage (minus alcohol but thats a reasonable price inside )
The Army supports events there and when they do its always an awesome event.
