Thread: Speedway Fun Runs

  1. #1

    Question Speedway Fun Runs

    Do we need to pre-register for the fun runs? Or, is it first come first serve?

    Last year you just paid your $25 at the speedway and signed your life away. Drive in and get in line.

    Same this year. You can show up, pay and do the autocross in the morning and fun runs in the afternoon. Also when you pay to run, you get free admission to the stunt show afterwords.

    There are a couple of cars on the track at a time, but they are close to each other and speeds are limited with cones and tires around the track to keep cars lowered on the track. It is definitely fun to do

    no helmets needed and you can have as many passengers as you can fit safely.

    So what kind of speeds are you able to get up to on the track? It's a shame there isn't a top speed run location.

    Remember, this is a 0.5-mile oval and we let 3 cars (well-spaced) out on the track at at time. The track is coned/tired off to keep people in a "prefered" line. Still, skilled drives can reach nearly 90+ on the front stretch, but you HAVE to know what you are doing. There is NO room on a 0.5-mile over for a top speed run even if you were out on a cleared track. Also (and this is important), we don't rent the Speedway, so participants sign the Speedway's waivers. The track setup will push EVERY drivers skill, I guarantee that. Some try to push to hard and we have had a couple of wrecks through the years. The Speedway has continually said that if folks don't keep their driving "within reason" and push too hard, they will ask that driver to leave.

    All that said, ask anyone who's done the Fun Runs and they'll tell you that you can push plenty hard.

    OK, just so I am crystal clear, you pay $25 per car, and you get to autocross in the morning, do fun runs in the afternoon, and stay for the thrill show that evening? Add $5 for the wife, who will just ride along/spectate?

    TGR96: I think for your wife to have access to the infield with you (as a passenger), it will be either $20 or $25 for her as well. I'm pretty sure that the $5 is for the stands only.

    I bought mine today, it is $25 for car and driver, $5 per passenger.
    The armband for the driver is checkered and the passenger / pit pass is solid color.
