Many people come to stock car races just to see the crashes, but only a small minority stays for the exchange of insurance information. Live through some vicarious road rage with today's GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get two adult general-admission tickets to the race at Flat Rock Speedway on Saturday, August 6, at 7 p.m. (up to a $30 value). Gates open at 4 p.m. Tickets will be available for pickup at the box office. Kids ages 6–12 are charged $3 for admission, and kids under 6 are admitted for free. Parking is free.
Built in 1953 as one of the first rubberized asphalt tracks in the country, the hallowed quarter-mile of Flat Rock Speedway has accepted the burnt rubber of such racing greats as Michael Waltrip, Davey Allison, Iggy Katona, and Eddie Sachs. Spectators can arrive as early as 4 p.m. before the 7 p.m. start and take the time to ogle the collected Enduro 250s, four-cylinder speed machines, and ARCA trucks. Once everybody buckles in and the engines warm up, fans can dig into $1 hot dogs while following the action of three separate races. Cheer for your favorite corporate sponsor as four-cylinder vehicles rip their engines around the perpetual left turns, or watch as the figure eights take handwriting practice to unnecessarily dangerous heights.
