Sip, Slide, Spectate & Support in July at Lake Erie Speedway!

We hope you’re ready for an adrenaline-filled summer!

Monster Trucks at Lake Erie Speedway

This past month has been an absolute blast at Lake Erie Speedway! The weather has been great and we have seen an incredible crowd come out for every event.

You showed up in full force this past month for the latest Crash-A-Rama, making it our largest event ever at the track! Followed by the All Star Monster Trucks for a special Father’s Day weekend and then we rounded out June with RZR Bulls and Barrels! Keeping up the momentum we’re driving headfirst into July and have an exciting lineup with a mix of racing and off-the-track events.

July 8th We’re kicking the month off with the first ever Spectator Drags and Aussi Style Burnout Competition on July 8th. We know that many of our events bring a large “walk-up” crowd however this being a new event we need to reach a certain capacity in order to run, which means we need you to purchase your tickets in advance or this event may end up being canceled. Registration is open to anyone and tech information is available at We are still accepting driver entries! There are a few more spots we need to fill so come on out, burn some rubber and and show us what you got! Did we mention there are cash prizes!?

Next up, The Great Lakes Cars and Coffee will be rolling into Lake Erie Speedway on July 9th. This is a great opportunity to show off your ride and check out some incredible builds, all while supporting TWO great organizations. Admission is only $10 at the gate and 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the Parkinson’s Partners of NW PA and the Alzheimer’s Association of NW PA. It’s a great way to get out with friends, get some steps in, and support some great causes that directly benefit members of our community.
