    If you are looking for a real good time I would have to say you should go to Fast Tracks & Hobbies in Bechtelsville!!!! It is only 5 mins from Grandview... Friday nites is Womp Mods and Reading Mods, then on Sunday mornings they race 1/24 Late Models and 1/24 Dirt Mods. I know that they would have the most in stock at all times then just about anyone else in our area!!!!!!!! (I live in Breinigsville) They also have a Drag Strip if your into going straight....

    Give ALL of them a try... then pick!



    I added more of the raceways mentioned in posts above to the OWH Raceway Directory. If you type in your City or zip code and set it to 100 miles radius, you'll find a bunch.

    NOTE: always call first before planning a trip to visit a raceway. While I do strive to keep the listings up to date, I depend on info from others to update my listings. Unfortunately, raceways do tend to open, move, change hours, and close... and rarely (if ever) update web sites or online listings - so it is always best to contact them before visiting.

    You are very fortunate to have so many tracks in your area! Have fun!

    Trains and Lanes has a 155' King, a 220' Altec (reverse Englemann, vintage from the 60's actually built by Stu Englemann hisself) and an medium sized oval, The tracks are a little rough, but manageable. As far as I know, they don't do much actual racing at the moment ,so getting track time just to play is never a problem. I'm pretty sure that they're open 7 days, too. Just off RT33 north of RT22. Exit Stockertown Rd, left off ramp, next two lefts, cross bridge, on your right.
