An outing where you can yell, cheer, jump and FEEL the excitement? 

RACING! Wilmot Raceway is home to a 3/8 mile clay semi-banked oval track where you can get up close to the action and feel the dirt flying off the track or sit up and back where you can see all the action at once. No matter where you're sitting, you're going to have a great time. 

Races are running on Saturday nights from through September, and the track has special events each week. Why wait? Start planning your trip by checking out their website to take a look at the schedule. Gates open at 5:00 p.m. and races start at 6:45 p.m. If you plan on going with the family, any night is a blast and kids are welcome, but they offer family nights a few times each season. Family nights are great because adult tickets are discounted and kids 11 and under are free. Don't forget noise reducing headphones for the kids - the cars get extremely loud! If you don't know where to find them, you can purchase them at the track in assorted fun blue and pink colors.

So, what's the dirt on races? Here is a highlight of upcoming races and events at Wilmot Raceway:

These are just a few for the races on the schedule. You can find a complete schedule for the track events online. Remember, races are weather dependant, so always check for updates. A night at Wilmot Raceway is fun for the whole family, and a unique outing for a date night or group activity. Before we even left the track, my girls were asking when we will be back. They had a great night and I will never get enough of their happy faces when the driver they chose won! From the time trials to the winners' circle, Saturday nights are a blast at the track.
