Welcome to Saratoga Motorsports Park! Race Play, Stay.

The racing surface is a unique 3/8-mile tri-oval featuring two banked corners and a long backstretch dogleg that provides plenty of room to do battle and challenges the best teams every race! Inner and outer concrete safety barriers were added in 2021 and the extensive billboard wall does triple-duty; providing a further measure of safety reaching 8’ above the concrete wall, reducing noise egress from the racing surface to the outlying area and to provide an amazing promotional platform for our many corporate and local sponsors!

We can seat approximately 2460 spectators in the bleachers, 64 more in the R-Ace Tables at the R-Ace Beer Gardens off corner-4, and further 400 fans distributed about the standing room areas. Hot meals, snacks hot and cold drinks are served from our 4 concourse concessions and 1-infield concession.

Ticket prices and discounts.

The box office is easy to spot: through the wrought iron gates under the “Welcome Race Fans” sign. The right-hand booth will accept walk-up fans as well as pre-paid tickets and passes while the left hand booth is set-up to move those with pre-paid tickets and passes only into the concourse with minimal delay. 

Tip: During peak hours there will be a third ticket booth available to the left of the main-gate, to welcome both walk-up and pre-paid ticket entry.

Please note that the following items are prohibited from entry and SMP reserves the right to legally search any bag being carried through the gate:

  • Alcohol or controlled substances
  • Food or Drink (unless it’s required for special dietary requirements)
  • Weapons/knives

Once you’ve been admitted into the speedway you can exit again if needed through the same gate but don’t forget to stop at the booth first and get a wrist-band so we know you’ve already been admitted!! 

The speedway offers designated grandstand seating for every event. Seats are selected upon purchase and the stands are divided up into sections and rows; have a look up on the back of the bleachers at each entrance to find the section numbers.

We’ve improved accessibility at the speedway and will continue to develop our accessibility program throughout SMP as new venues are developed. Accessible parking can be found right outside the concourse entry and features a concrete walkway leading through the entry to a newly paved concourse making it easier for mobility device operations.

The paved portion of the concourse leads to a viewing platform at the centre of the grandstand complex offering an unobstructed view of the race surface as well as direct access to challenge-free washroom facilities and concession kiosks. 

We remain open to suggestions from race fans who utilize our accessible facilities and encourage feedback.   

We are pet lovers honestly, but sorry; pets are not allowed in the Saratoga Speedway complex with the exception of service animals (Official service animal and/or ESA certificate(s) required).

We invite pet owners to leave their pets at home or with their favourite buddy while visiting us here in Black Creek and not in their vehicles here at the Park. Temperatures can soar in the valley, which can present a deadly health hazard for your pets. 

In the event of inclement weather racing will be temporarily suspended until the racing surface is safe for competition. If the weather is sustained making it unsafe to continue racing we will announce an end to the program. Should this event-call occur before the time-trial qualification races against the clock are completed, guests will be reimbursed their ticket value minus processing fees.

If this event-call occur after 50% of the first feature event program has been completed there will be no refunds or rain cheques issued.

SMP does not provide refunds; see our “RAINOUT” and “CURFEW” policies above.

For the comfort and health of our guests and SMP is proud to provide a smoke and vape free environment throughout all spectator areas.

Alcohol is prohibited from entry or consumed openly outside of the R-Ace Beer Gardens located at the corner-4 side of the concourse.

Lots of SMP official swag is available at the R-Ace Beer Garden service centre located at the Corner-4 side of the concourse.
