Langley Speedway

For two Lightning McQueen lovers, Langley Speedway was the place to be last weekend. It was our first time at a race, and I had no idea how kid friendly the speedway is. There has been racing at Langley for 72 years, with racing from March to October. They are the oldest professional sports enterprise in Hampton Roads and the longest-running sports enterprise in Southeastern Virginia. 

We went on Halloween weekend, so there was a Trunk-or-Treat happening. We got to see all of the cars up close and personal and meet the drivers. Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors or military, $7 for kids ages 6-12, and free for 5 and under. Snag a family pack of two adult and two children's tickets for $35. Races run from March to October. The race that we attended began at 5 and ended about 8:30. You can bring in a soft-sided cooler with drinks and snacks.  There is a children's playground right on the grounds, and kids were playing throughout the race. Be sure to bring headphones, as the cars are loud.
