Spring is here and things are beginning to open for the season. At least, that's what we're all sitting around waiting on.

I grew up in Houston watching drag racing, funny cars, and just fun at the speedway. Some things never change as the Meridian Speedway sets to open the season with the ATS Inland Season Opener Saturday, April 10.

This is a big opener featuring the Speed Tour Modifieds, Bud Light NASCAR Modifieds, Mulder Engineered Race Engines Junior Late Models, Pauly's Bar Room Street Stocks, and Domino's Legends. The weather should be nice close to 60 degrees and plenty of cars flying the track all day Saturday.

If you've never been to a race at the Meridian Raceway Park you won't regret the atmosphere. This is just a great time for the entire family and your kids will love it. This might be one of those events you've been looking for that is fun and outdoors.

The gates open at 4:45 PM and races will begin at 6:30 PM. There are several different races and price points for everyone. You can get your tickets online or wait in line. These can be scanned from your phones.

Tickets Prices:

  1. Adults: $13
  2. Seniors: $11
  3. Military: $11
  4. Kids 7-11: $7
  5. Kids 6 and under: Free
  6. Family pass $36 (2 adults, 4 kids 11 and under)

You can't bring food, drinks, or alcoholic beverages inside the track. No pets allowed. They do sell food and drinks including alcohol inside.

Discount: This is the first race of the year which means you can save $2 on adults/military/senior passes by purchasing online. This only valid for Saturday.
