It's sad to see a long-time landmark go, but to be honest, I've always felt as if Elko Speedway put on a better program, and the facilities out there are much nicer than what could be had at Raceway Park. Add it to the memory bank along with Flying Cloud Drive-In Movie Theatre, Hauer's Drive-In, and other local hot spots from the '50's and '60's era.

Our family has attended the races every year for 22 years. Lots of great memories, a family friendly environment and one of the most cost effective places for family entertainment around. We hope to see the stands filled for the last year.

Guess that is progress. I remember a friend's dad taking my brother and I to Raceway Park on Sunday afternoons back in the middle 1960's. Elko is nice ,but ..its in Elko.

Sorry to see Raceway closing. A lot of memories. Much like Porkies. Progress I guess. Looks like xpensive real estate did it in. Here is an idea? I-94 Speedway sits empty looking for a buyer right along side I-94 at Sauk Centre, MN. A bit of a drive from the Metro, but an opportunity to continue auto racing in Minnesota for the right investors.
