Fan Guides

A Call to Arms

Just about every speedway and raceway has some type of fan guide to their facility which includes what you can bring into the venue, where you can park, when the gates open, and various other important but rather sterile bits of logistical information.

What is often missing are the tips and suggestions from fans who have been there. Some questions that are often unanswered by the official track guides are “Where is the best place to stay?”, or “Where can I find the best local grub?”, or “Where is the best place to sit to watch qualifying or the racing?” This is what we’re going to try and bring to you in this section. It won’t just be Shaun, Mike, and I bringing answers to the real fan questions for the various venues, though. It will be fellow fans like yourself. In order for this section to be truly useful and successful, we need thoughts and insights from people who not only have been to the various venues, but who are intimately familiar with the area. As we start to develop these guides, please understand that they are a work in progress. We encourage everyone to chime in with feedback on the guides we post, and most importantly to submit guides of your own! You can send your guide to me at doug@openpaddock.net. If you have a correction or addition to an existing guide, please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section.
