The track features a raised backstretch offering fans a better view over the infield of the oval. The track hosts USAC/CRA sprint cars, street stocks, dirt modifieds, and many others. It hosted the Turkey Night Grand Prix midget car race in 1996, 2012 and 2013.[1] The track has also hosted the World of Outlaws and the Traxxas TORC Series.[2]
