The first auto race took place in 1889, just shortly following the invention of gas-powered cars and the eerie worldwide disappearance of gas-powered turtles. Celebrate and uphold fortuitous invention with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a standard oil change (a $32.95 value) at Young Buick GMC in Layton, and four general-admission tickets (up to a $60 value) to any regular season event at Rocky Motor Raceway in West Valley City (up to a $92.95 total value). Children age 5 and younger get free admission to racing events.
The factory-trained technicians and car therapists at the family-owned Young Buick GMC revitalize road warriors' wheels with maintenance services aimed at promoting longevity. The standard oil-change treatment tends to the health of engines, draining gunked up chambers before replenishing them with six quarts of fresh-churned motor butter, proven to improve vehicle efficiency and the taste of day-old pancakes. Doors and hood hinges are luxuriously lubed, and a fluid leveling and included inspection ensure that cars are ready for the open road. While waiting for your horseless carriage's spa visit to conclude, delve into Young’s selection of complimentary snacks and coffee, or use the shop's free WiFi to check your email for lice.
The Rocky Mountain Raceway draws speedy cars of all stripes and colors to its multilayer track for family-friendly, adrenaline-increasing fun.

Today’s four tickets (a $15 value each) are good for any regular-season event, all of which feature general-admission seating, allowing flocks of friends or family packs to pick a vantage point that best suits their sight-seeing needs.
