This is a write up that was is The Advertiser yesterday Thank you Laura.

Tucked in behind Melvern Square in Annapolis County, Valley Raceway is a hidden gem worth discovering. Last year was the official grand opening of Valley Raceway but owners Peggy Gould and Greg Banks have been working on it for the past seven years.

“Greg really enjoyed stock car racing on a dirt track, and there wasn’t one around the Valley,” says Gould, “so he took it upon himself to build one.”

What I know about racing came from Lightening McQueen in Cars, so I did some research. Valley Raceway features stock car racing on the Valley’s only dirt track. There are three different stock car races. The classes are four cylinder, eight cylinder and unlimited.

Stock cars race around the dirt track for the afternoon. Each group races 10 laps each. This happens twice. Then, for the final three races, drivers race 12 laps for a cash prize.

These races happen every other Sunday from June until Sept. 20. The races begin at 1 p.m. and finish around 4 p.m. If it rains, Gould says the race is pushed to the following week. To find out for sure, visit the Valley Raceway Facebook page or website for updates.

Tickets to the races are $10 each, with children under 12 admitted free.

From the very beginning, Gould said they wanted to make Valley Raceway a community event and a fun family day. They wanted to create a place where people could bring their children and not worry.

“We felt all families who wanted to come may not have the money, so we try to keep the cost down. This is why children 12 and under are free,” says Gould.

Youth really do enjoy the day. Just ask Jessica, 11, and Leland Smith, nine, of Kentville. They enjoy going to Valley Raceway because it’s fun to watch and something different to do. Besides, Leland loves watching the car crashes!

When you go to Valley Raceway, there are rows of bleachers. There is no shade, so be sure to bring your sunscreen and a hat.

Gould suggests bringing earplugs for a very young or a sensitive child. The racing can get loud, especially during the unlimited races.

There is a canteen on-site selling hotdogs, hamburgers, drinks and snacks, so you will be well refreshed and nourished.

Valley Raceway is a really fun afternoon. There is a great energy and camaraderie amongst the drivers and the crowd. If you don’t understand something, ask a neighbour! A lot of people have season passes, or know the drivers in the race.

Definitely add Valley Raceway to your summer bucket list!

Laura Churchill Duke (www.valleyfamilyfun.ca) and her family went to Valley Raceway this summer and loved it! It was so much better to see it live than in Cars!
