Thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your time at Octane Raceway! We have a strict two drink max policy before racing. We enforce it by marking the customer's wristband when they come up to the bar for a drink.

An inexpensive way to have fun. The place fills up fast with different groups so you might want to book a time and come back later.
