I have been to this track with my friend who lives in marquette. It was her first time at a race and she dug it. Later some guy she met in a bar that races there dedicated a win to her. Its a neat little track with the ruins of a grandstand built into the side of the hill. The backstretch is down hill of the frontstretch which is kinda cool.

The flys were misierable and it was hot but it was great. They had no late models that day but the diversity of the cars there was interesting. good 4 cylinder races. Never saw a volkswagen rabbit stock car on an oval before.

If you are up that way on a day they are racing you gotta go. There was also a go cart race at a near by park that day, which made finding this track confusing because of roadside directions for the go cart racers.
