Bought a discount ticket on Groupon. Had a really great time. We went for the "NASCAR: Night of Champions presented by 805." I've never followed NASCAR or any kind of Speedway sport, however we had a lot of fun at this event! The Groupon gave us a great deal that included the gokart track, a hot dog meal and entrance to the event itself. The gokarts were really fun, my face hurt afterwards from smiling the entire time! GoKart tips: Girls-take out your earrings, the helmets are a tight squeeze. We got there when they opened around 430PM so there wasn't a crowd. Not sure if a bigger crowd came later. Worth the discount price, not really for $20 full price.
Getting to see the cars up close and meet the drivers on the track before the race was also a fun treat. Some of those kids are even too young for a Driver's License! Cool to get to stand on the track. The crowd was just right for us as it wasn't jam packed and we weren't squooshed up against people. Beer was reasonably priced, cheaper than the Fair. Parking is $5. Best to have cash for purchases, but there was a portable ATM on site. Bathrooms were large and acceptable, never had to wait. We were there from about 430P-11P, racing was 7p-11p. Only needed earplugs for the main event race. It was a warm night, but i'm sure it gets cold there. Best race was the "slide cars" where the back wheels had been replaced by flat steel plates. hilarious to watch! All in all a great night out and definitely something different!
