Delaware Speedway unleashes a feast for the eyes and ears in the form of zooming stock cars and roaring engines around its half-mile oval track, pitting visitors face-to-face with the action in its unique amphitheatre-style seating. The speedway’s history stretches back 60 years to misty memories of the 1950s, when rock 'n' roll blared from radios and stock cars sported glistening, motor-oiled pompadours. Today, families gather on the grassy lawn or in the stands, cheering on stock car championships, Junior Racing League cups, and truck races as chariots fly into a colourful blur before their eyes. As they take in the stimulating sights and sounds of a day at the races, they fuel up with pizza, burgers, and hot dogs at the concession stand or refresh themselves with a frosty beer at the beer patio.
