Frequently Asked Questions
When should I arrive?
For all Friday night and Saturday night races, the doors open at 4:30 pm, qualifying starts at 5:30 pm and the actual races start at 6:30 pm. Depending on if you would like to watch the qualifying (if so arrive at 5:30 pm), we would recommend you arrive at least 20-30 minutes before the races start. How early you arrive should also depend on the size of the event that night. For one of our special event shows, such as Eve of Destruction or Monster Trucks, you should arrive even earlier. The earlier you come, the more seating options will be available. You will also have more time to look around in the souvenir booth and get your concession food before there is a line up!
Where should I sit?
Anywhere you would like, it is all open seating! The Western Speedway’s grandstand is big enough to accommodate 3,000 fans! There is also a beer garden which includes a section of the grandstands as well as a patio equipped with picnic tables.

What happens if it rains?
In the event of a sudden shower, the program may be temporarily suspended; however, every effort will be made to complete the program after the rain stops. If , in the opinion of the Western Speedway Officials, the bad weather will prevent a return of a safe racing condition in a reasonable amount of time, the remaining races will be postponed or cancelled as follows:
1.The program will be considered complete (no raincheck) if: a) half of the scheduled events are run, or b) half of the feature laps are completed.
2.Some of the remaining events may be run as part of a future program.
3.In the event of rain, curfew or any circumstances beyond the control of the officials, the race may be declared complete or continued at the discretion of the official in charge.
4.If the program is not considered complete (see No. 1), your ticket stub will serve as the raincheck for the designated rain date
Is the track wheelchair accessible?
YES, there is an elevated wheelchair area in front of the grandstands to the far left
