Fodor's Review

"New York's Thunder Road" rumbles from June to September. The season's highlight is the NASCAR Series, in mid-August. On a Thunder Road Tour ($25; May–October, most days at noon), you drive the track in your own vehicle behind a pace car. Call for schedules and prices. You can get tickets, souvenirs, and merchandise at The Shop, at 4 North Franklin Street, downtown.
