    Hey! Super excited for the 4th of July! I want to take my family to the races because we have been in ND for a year and have not had any time to go! My husband works in the oil fields so it is hard to predict when he might be home! However, this Friday he actually has off!! So excited for a holiday that he will actually be with us! This will put the cherry on top of a great holiday! Thanks!

    We experienced the loss of my daughter’s dad this past December and are looking for something fun and exciting to do on this first Fourth if July without him… To help ease the pain and sadness of his loss! It would be a wonderful way to celebrate Independence day and get away for the day.

    Going to the races sounds like a wonderful American Fourth of July fun way to celebrate. We are a military family that moved here recently. My husband and son are into racing, my son bought his first car not to long ago and it’s a 69 roadrunner that he could drive us there in.

    I would love the chance to take my family to the races and the fireworks. We can’t afford a lot of outings due to medical expenses for my one year old that always leaves us in a financial bind and third would be a huge treat for us all, especially my one year old who didn’t get to see the fireworks last year because his health prevented him from being able to be outside.

    Being I have no plans for the 4th of July, this would be a great way to spend it especially with my daughter here visiting before she goes back to Minnesota the following day. Neither of us have been to any type of races like this or ever experienced it before. This would be new and a fun exciting experience for us both and my fiancé as well. 🙂

    I’d like to take my fam to the races at Nodak Speedway because the smell of racing is something you only get at the track! The smell that brings you back to when you were a kid. The excitement, the sounds, and the best way to experience MERICA! So, racing AND fireworks…..can’t beat it!!!!!

    My husband is halfway through a 7 month military deployment, and he is able to come home for a short visit for the 4th of july. He grew up going to races, and I cant think of a better way to surprise him and our two kids than with racing tickets, followed by fireworks!
