Arena Racing USA
Reviewed 31 May 2016

The smell of diesel fumes and the cheer of the crowd let's you know where you are. The roar is deafening as these pint sized cars race around a track at break neck speeds inches from one another. Invariably there is a crash every minute or so but that only adds to the excitement. The fans are fantastic and the evening does its best to cater to them. A different type of fun that you should experience once in your life, especially if you have kids.

If you like dirt track racing you will love Arena racing. This is great racing in downtown Richmond. Ticket prices are fair for a family if they offer kids free with adult racing. It becomes a high dollar event though if kids are not free. We go to almost every race each year and look forward to the drama that is created when a racer gets knocked out and they don't feel it is deserved. Support Arena Racing as it would be a shame if Richmond would ever lose it.

I won some tickets to the Arena Racing in Richmond last night. I wasn't sure what I was getting into, so the family and I went over to the coliseum to check it out. To my surprise, it was really a fun event to watch and I will go back the next time they race. The cars look like mini stock cars and are driven by adults and they have a youth division. They are about 3 times the size of a large go cast, but go much faster. The race on a banked track and have all the spin outs and wrecks like a NASCAR event but on a much smaller scale. The races are only about 10 min long so the kids don't get bored. They also do all the fun stuff like throw out t-shirts and let the kids start the races etc.. Give it a try, you will enjoy it.
