I was there for NASCAR racing. It's a great short track with good views and night racing. Crowd is orderly, area is clean, and lots of staff/volunteers to assist.

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!
