Accord Speedway Wraps Season with the Gobbler

I had the opportunity once to drive on the track at the Accord Speedway and I remember thinking this is a tight little track that is fun to drive on but how do those drivers go so fast? The quarter-mile dirt track also has a nice bank to it which makes racing there super exciting.

On Gobbler race day spectators will enjoy Sportsman, Pure Stock, Four Cylinder, Rookie Sportsman, All-star, and Junior Slingshot racing. Racing is scheduled for Saturday, November 26th, 2022. The pits will open at 10:30 AM. Gates for spectators open at 12 PM and the Hot Laps will be underway by1 PM.
