Facility Amenities: Lincoln Speedway is a very popular and "fan friendly" track in the tri-state area, offering great unobstructed viewing from every seat in the grandstands. The infield is open for watching the races by entering through the fourth turn tunnel. The pits are asphalt with a slight elevation and great lighting so fans can watch all the pit action as well. The three-eighth mile Lincoln Speedway offers it all, the high speeds that you would see a the "big tracks" with the flair and excitement of the short track "bull rings". Located in the "Pigeon Hills" of Pennsylvania, Lincoln Speedway has it all.
