smallish track compared to Indy, etc, but still exciting to watch.Seemed to me the cars were always slowing down before they got to top speed. . . Tix are pricey, but around the time of the races there may be discouts in local papers.

Great place, lots of fun.....but NO ONE goes to the races there. Wasn't even half full. Very disappointed in the crowd. Great facility, no clue why people won't come. Bad neighborhood maybe?

Had a great time tailgating before the race! There was a lot to do and see before the race started and we tried to participate in all the activities!!!! Easy access to the parking lot afterwards... traffic wasn't that bad considering 40,000 were leaving!

Michael I think you are dead on balls accurate with your assessment. RIR is a great place to watch the cars up close. I hope you really enjoy the races!
Hi, we are camping with another couple and can only have one vehicle at the campsite. Are there any recommendations for safe parking for the other vehicle we will have for the weekend? This is for the April race. Thanks!
