    It's NOT a Nascar track & there have been a lot of repairs that have been made since it's under new management. They race there on Friday nights & my husband & I go. We always have a good time & there has never been any issues!

    yeah, well, i saw half a dozen cop cars fly across 1010 on 401 doing at least 80mph. they are more of a danger than anything else.
