Auto shows are the safest places to practice pretend engine noises without attracting feral lawn mowers in heat. Rev up with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two adult admissions (a $24 value), two hot dogs (a $5 value), and two drinks (a $4.50 value) at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw.
A member track of the American Speed Association (ASA), Ace Speedway has been entertaining admirers of amped-up autos since 1956. Updated and expanded as the racing sport sprouted, Ace Speedway now boasts a 4/10-mile oval track with 12-degree banking. Guests can wash away the work week with a sensory shower of speeding sights and rumbling sounds at the Friday–night racing series. Those who show up early will catch warm-ups and qualifying heats before taking in divisions such as Late Model, Grand American Modifieds, Mini Stock, and Souped-up Soccer Mom Vans. Flathead Fords, Southern Ground Pounders, and other exhibition classes sanctioned by ASA visit the track throughout the season, and a number of touring divisions, such as PASS All Stars, compete at Ace Speedway on occasion. To stop taste buds from complaining about missing the action, visitors can savor a hot dog with a 20-ounce drink.
