What our fans think of the Night Under Fire
“This was my 5th Night Under Fire and it was awesome. How you put on a fantastic show year after year is short of amazing. My wife and I make it over 2 to 3 times a year. You all run a great facility. We love coming to the track and look forward to it every year. It is truly a fan friendly track.” - Todd Brest
"The fireworks display was beyond compare, it seems to get better each year. There were a lot of young children sitting around me and I had just as much fun watching the smiles on their faces as I did the racing." - Tim Stanislo
"I cannot express how great of an experience we had being there. It was amazing!!! I say that on behalf of us all and we cannot wait to come back again." - Patrice Riedel
"My family had such a great time, they're talking about next year already! What a great time they had while making memories for a life time." - Lori Carver
"This was my first year going to the Night Under Fire race. My husband and daughter, and a few other family members have been going to your race track for the Cavalcade of Stars, NHRA Nationals, and the Night Under Fire for about 5 years now. I was amazed by the firework show, I have never seen a better display of fireworks. I am hooked! I can't wait to go back next year w/ my family, & the friends who also went this year for their first time.. Great job, great track, great racing, great fireworks!!!!" - Melissa Saxton
