I'd not been to the track since it was called Slick 50 Raceway. I was able to buy preferred seating at the ticket window and thoroughly enjoyed the Top Eliminator Club. The only request I would make is that the track promoters add a few big screen televisions to the tent. Lots of food choices as well.

It's not run down. They hold a lot of events here besides racing. Racing enthusiasts love this venue. I did the MS mucky duck here and the facilities are very good.

Great stop for some family fun for those who like cars, speed, and loud. Great for families too. There is always something going on here at the track. Don't miss it.

They did a ride along with an experienced driver for their first 3 laps then got to drive alone for the next 10 or 15 laps. The track is small but was enough for them for their... More
