“We are opening today with a tremendous amount of excitement and optimism.” said General Manager Christopher Dragone. “We had a good season last year and we generated a great deal of excitement with our core racing fans, as well as first-timers. Today that same optimism continues with an even greater focus on our guests than last year.”
