Imagine the piercing smell of rubber and hot asphalt, the roar of the stock-car's engine, and the splash of bright speed lines as you launch from the starting line. The licensed drivers of On Track Racing Experience introduce their clients to as many of these sensations as possible through ride-along and guided driving packages. After giving safety instruction in a brief driver orientation, staff let customers slip into the driver's seat of a late model two-seat stock car. During ride-along sessions, the driver always pushes the car to top speed and occasionally lets the passenger name it after their favorite grandmother. On Track Racing Experience conducts its pulse-pounding rides and drives at the 1/3 mile Evergreen Raceway Park, the 1/2 mile CNB Bank Raceway Park and at Jennerstown Speedway."

One million bricks. That's what remained of The Maryland Theatre after a fire damaged it in 1974 and it subsequently fell into disrepair. Luckily a local businessman, a funeral director, and a group called Citizens to Save The Maryland Theatre joined forces to rescue it from the scrap heap and revive its 1915 glory. Not only did they polish its arabesque proscenium arches, curved orchestra boxes, and medallion moulding, they straightened up all the other neoclassical and art-deco elements that fill its five stories. Today, thanks to their efforts and the fact that Americans haven't gotten bored with entertainment, the venue is once again a go-to spot for musicals, bands, and standup acts.
