Race Tracks and ATV Trails
We have many racing and ATV-related places to see in Lawrence County! The movie "Cars" brought a lot of attention to dirt tracks everywhere, so it is no surprise that Thunderhill Raceway Park is a big hit with the kids! This dirt track is perfect for taking kids to see these cars slide through the turns, just like they did in the movie. Ethridge Motorsports Park is the place for those who like to see cars going straight. This 1/8th mile dragstrip is for top-speed cars that rattle the windows. They do have an alcohol class that goes over 200+ miles per hour. These cars come off the ground at the starting line, and kids love to see them jump up and take off! You will want to bring ear protection to either park, but the drag cars make it essential. Both tracks are family-friendly and do not sell alcohol. They both have great concession areas and feature ADA-compliant public restrooms when you need to go.
You will have a great time with any of the motorsports events we have in Lawrence County. Read on below, where we showcase each race track and give detailed descriptions of each track and how you can plan your trip to see them.
Ethridge Motorsports Park
At Ethridge Motorsports Park, it is all about speed. How fast they can take off and go down the track in a straight line the quickest! You don't need a pit pass here because the pits are open for anyone to see. Parents can show their kids how engines work and how they look when a pit crew takes them apart and builds them back together. The gas or alcohol these cars use is chemistry in the making. The crew chief looks over each part of the car's performance and records notes after each run. This planning phase can teach children the importance of working as a team and how each pit member is responsible for doing their part to make their car run the best.

Thunderhill Raceway Park
It is all about the oval here at Thunderhill Raceway Park! Dirt track racing is unique; only a few dirt tracks left. The "Cars" movie shows the main character learning to drive on a dirt track with a racing legend, and this time-tested track is reminiscent of how racing is done today. You can still see real racing with all the sliding through the turns at Thunderhill as you would back in the days the old cars used to do it. Everyone interested in the oval track should experience dirt track racing at least once in their lives. This park is great for kids, as they even have a kid's racing division! Their concession area has great foods kids like, and there is usually a cook who provides better foods for us adults, like BBQ sandwiches and huge burgers meant for an adult appetite!

ATV and Off Road
Lawrence County has a lot of places to go off-road, and try your skills at doing laps around the track at your own speed! Due to the nature of off-roading adventures, we do not currently have a place to ride with rental equipment for a visitor to lease. If a rider has their own equipment and brings their ATV or motorbike with them, then they can ride under the circumstances placed by the track. For example, The North Alabama Rider Association has a membership fee a rider has to pay to ride in Westpoint before they can legally ride there. Other tracks are ride at your own risk. Wheeling in the Country is a huge trail-riding place with rock climbing and off-roading for serious riders with specialty equipment. The North Alabama Trail Riders Association is varied and offers many trail types and jumps depending on skill level. Many of the race tracks and parks are safe for most beginner trail riders and kids as long as they know how to ride or go slow to learn. We will leave links to their websites so you can get more information on where to ride!
