We cannot wait to welcome into our home every racer who gives it everything they have to qualify to represent their track, and our track, at the Summit ET Racing Series Team Finals. Our team is already making plans to ensure a special and significant event for everyone in attendance, whether they have previously been to our park or not. It will be memorable.”
