What To Bring: The entire family and friends, lawn chairs or blanket for terraced hillside seating or cushions or stadium seats for backstretch seating, Casual attire is the word at the speedway. Just remember, you are out in the outdoors, so dress accordingly for the elements, and don’t forget the sunscreen. The races can get loud at times so if you have sensitive hearing, ear plugs or ear muffs may be the ticket for you. We sell both products at the souvenir stand at a minimal cost.

Remember no glass bottles or ALCOHOL will be allowed into the speedway, as your cooler will be subject to inspection before entry to the grand stand area. If your cooler is larger than 14” we will ask you to take it back to your vehicle. Unattended coolers left at the gate will NOT be the responsibility of the West Virginia Motor Speedway.

If you attend other sporting event venues, don’t think you will see a $4 hot dog or a $6 beer at West Virginia Motor Speedway …..our food is good & it is affordable for the entire family!
