This raceway is small, well looked after and has a great atmosphere, there is loads of room to park, locals make you feel welcome and the food prices inside are not extreme, overall nice evening out watching fast cars!

Short track racing at its best. One race we also purchased the green room with food and drinks. Not sure that it's still available though.

We have been to both the fall and spring races. This is a well maintained track with a friendly staff. The facility is easily navigated and the escalator access to the grandstands is a definite plus. The handicapped parking is convenient and very accessible. If...More

This was another race track to me! Large, nice stands and nice infield. The track was asphalt and my husband said a short track. Very exciting!

Always something new to discover. The permanent displays are great, but you never know when you are going to find something "special" to each child.Genetics, space dinosaurs, you just never know.

We try and stop at the different NASCAR raceways when on vacation. So we stopped and watched some the the Andretti experiences. And I took some pictures on victory lane. It's a very nice place.

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!
Hi, we are camping with another couple and can only have one vehicle at the campsite. Are there any recommendations for safe parking for the other vehicle we will have for the weekend? This is for the April race. Thanks!

Commonwealth grandstand and tower is on the front stretch. Section B is at the start finish line. To have a good view of the whole track you need to be up at least 20 rows, or be in the tower. They are not cheap tickets but... More
