Great racing on a great track, we were there 3 nights and the final nights feature was a dustbowl so that was disapointing, stands were cramped in, need to make a tad more room for people, they threw out our drinks weren't allowed to take anything in other than water, thought that was poor, food was ordinary not many options ok for one night but when you are there 3 nights its ordinary, carpark took ages to get out of but all of them do on busy nights. They are organised though, races went quick, they get through the night well, no mucking around, local crowd go crazy they love their local drivers. We came from Australia for a WOO show so it was good to see the passion.

Gold Cup Fever in September, Hot ! Don't go to speedway before 5pm. Try to get seats with your back to the sun. Take a cushion. Heaps of eateries and drinks stands. Heaps of Fan memorabilia for sale. Great little race track...take sunnies or eye protection...very dusty

While in Chico, California, I decided to take in a night of racing at this well known track. Then cost of a ticket to get in was only $11.00 for a seniors ticket. That was dirt cheap, especially for the quality of entertainment that you received.

Everything was very well organized. The drivers knew when to line up for the next race, so there was very little lag time between races. There was track spotters all around the track to insure proper safety for drivers and for those involved in crashes. The track was very fast, lighting was great and they had a good sound system and a regular announcer who had been announcing for over 12 years at this track. They even had someone going through the stands before the race taking up a collection to raise money to send this announcer on a little vacation at the end of the season.

The only comment I have about the food offered was in their burgers. The burger was served on an ice cold bun instead of a warm bun. To me this makes for a cold burger instead of something you would really enjoy.

Having a background in racing, I might be prejudiced, but this speedway puts on a great show for dirt track followers. The Gold Cup races every September with the 410 outlaw sprint cars are rated as one of the top 3 races in the country for this type of car racing. Kept clean and family oriented it is a fun way to spend a weekend evening in the summer.

Wonderful way to spend a summer Friday evening watching all kinds of racing with great crowds. Easy to relax and enjoy the show these talented drivers give each week. Gets a bit dirty with the dirt flying as the drivers speed around the track but it washes off!
