Family Fun at the Williams Grove Speedway

Sprint car racing has been around for decades and one of the premier sprint car racing tracks happens to be located in south central Pennsylvania. Williams Grove Speedway has been open for business since 1939 and continues to be one of the hottest places for sprint car racing. The race track is a 1/2 mile in length and made of smooth clay.

The typical racing season runs March through early October with special events held in between that time. Admission prices vary according to age and race event that you're attending. If you're taking the kids along with you to the track, children 12 and under are admitted for FREE with a paying adult. The 2017 racing season looks like it will be a great one! 

You'll find the speedway located off W. Lisburn Road at 1 Speedway Drive in Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania. Right down the street from the speedway you'll find the Williams Grove Farmers Flea Market which is open on Sundays from sunrise until 2 PM. You can find directions on their website. 

When we visit the speedway I always take along sunscreen and bug spray. Right before we go in the gates, We all get our sunscreen on and insect repellent. At times those mosquitoes can be quite nasty when you're out during the evening, especially on a muggy night. Just a little tip about that! 

If you get hungry or need something to drink, you can find food & beverages there. For the most part, they're affordable but you do need to watch what you get. In addition, some races garner a larger crowd than during other times. Regardless, we always have a great time when we go! 

You can visit the Williams Grove Speedway website to find a complete schedule of all of the sprint car races and special racing events that they host. You can also connect with them over on Facebook to get current up-to-date information on racing events.
