Laurel Race Track is a passenger rail station on the MARC Camden Line between Washington, DC and Baltimore's Camden Station.[1] The station was built in 1911 by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad to serve the Laurel Park Racecourse, as indicated by the name.

Service at this station is very limited. Only PM southbound trains (to Washington) stop at this station, and it is a flag stop, meaning that trains only stop if passengers need to get on or off.[2]
