The Western Speedway is part of the All Fun Recreational Park, which includes not only the speedway, but also go-karting, batting cages, mini put, and an R.V park. Although most people visit this site on a per-day basis, if you own an R.V, it is entirely possible to spend your vacation there. The speedway itself is probably one of the area’s most exciting attractions, especially for children. After all, what child doesn’t like racing cars, monster trucks, and demolition derbies?

The action at the Speedway is fast paced, so there isn’t much waiting around while your rear gets sore from sitting for too long. There are regular race days, and special events like monster truck rallies and demolition derbies are held here often. The seating and facilities are kept pretty clean, which can be rare in this type of attraction. No matter where on the grandstand you sit, because of the way the seating is angled you’ll have an unobstructed view of the race track, and even of the motocross track just beyond it, allowing you the best opportunity to enjoy the show you paid for.
Getting the Most out of the Western Speedway
While the Speedway is definitely a family attraction, it is probably not a good idea to bring infants or people with sensory input problems. The noise on the track can get quite loud and, coupled with the excited crowd, can be a little frightening for babies, and over-whelming for some other people. With that being said, if you bring a pair of earplugs or noise-reducing headphones for everyone in your family, you can manage the noise levels pretty effectively, and the whole experience can be quite fun. If you don’t have your own earplugs, these can be bought at the Speedway for a nominal fee. Food, such as pizza, burgers, hotdogs, non-alcoholic drinks, and candy can be bought at the concession under the grandstand, and isn’t all that expensive.
Bringing your own snacks and drinks is not allowed at the racetrack, but there is a way to get around this if you wish to save a few bucks. When you pay admission, you’re given a stamp on your hand. With this stamp, you can get in and out of the racetrack repeatedly. So, if you keep your stash of food and drinks in the car, you can simply go out to the parking lot when you get hungry or thirsty. Of course, this will mean that you can’t enjoy eating while watching the show, but the option is there if you are a bit short on cash that day.
As far as attractions go, the Western Speedway is fairly inexpensive, and you get a lot of bang for your buck. With a few things taken into consideration, a trip to the Speedway can be a fun and memorable experience for the entire family.
