Q: Can I bring my own food and drink into the Speedway?

A: Sycamore Speedway does not allow outside food or drink. We offer full concessions. In our concession stands you can purchase a wide variety of food and drink.

Q: Why would the races get cancelled?

A: There are several reasons that we may not be able to race at all or not complete a night of events once started.

  1. We are a clay race track and too much water may make the race surface unsafe for our drivers.
  2. It is raining out and we are a complete outdoor event.
  3. It can take time for the track to dry out and sometime what feels like a little sprinkle is enough to ruin a clay race track.

Q: How would I know if the races have been cancelled?

A: We try to get the word out as best as we can. There are several options for your convenience:

  1. Our weather line 815-895-5800.
  2. Facebook
  3. Join our mailing list for email blasts.
  4. Download our new Smart Phone Ap

Q: Will my young child enjoy the speedway?

A: Racing is a sport for all ages. Some may find that it is a little noisy and dusty, feel free to bring appropriate attire for this. If you happen to not have any or forget we sell these type of items in our full souvenir stand.

Q: Can children go into the pits?

A: Those under the age of 14 cannot go into the race pits. If you are between the ages of 14 and 17 you must have a minor release in order to enter the pits. A minor release only has to be completed once for every season and can be obtained at the pitshack on race nights.
