I was not expecting such a large, modern and nicely run race track as this, but here it was. It could have been Daytona or Bristol Nascar tracks and it had plenty to offer everyone. Like those two mentioned, this is one of the Nascar affiliated Weekly Racing Series tracks, a series that used to include 200 race tracks back in 1996.
From the large hospitality room and restaurant under the grandstands to the live animal display and very complete and modern play area for the kids, this track was one cool place to visit and on this night the stands were full.
There was a bicycle stunt show that entertained before the racing show and even a bus crash stunt where one school bus crashed into another one that was standing on end. The crowd went crazy.
We'll have lots of photos and things to talk about in our dedicated article on Elko, but now we need to move on to our fourth stop on this long haul, the very high banked Slinger Speedway...
