Great night of entertainment with great racing. Best night of the season with not knowing who was going to win each race until the checkered flag fell. Well worth going to for a good night out and cheap night of entertainment.

Fantastic venue, entertainment, short sharp show, great advertsing with easy to find information. Not just speedway with unique events like Drifting, Freestyle Motocross, Fireworks and Demo Derbies. Cheap night out and very family friendly.
