And with 365 days of Wyoming-sized entertainment, there’s sure to be something fun for your family whether you plan to stay or just pass through.
Decorators and green thumbs will love Southwest Wyoming’s Home and Garden Show. Gunslingers can feast their eyes at the Wasatch Gun Shows. Cowboys can get their fill of the west at the Red Desert Roundup Rodeo, USTRC Team Roping and loads of other rodeos. And if you’re a grease monkey of any sort, the complex’s Speedway is sure to get your motor running.
If you can’t get enough of the sweet roar of engines, you won’t want to miss out on the races happening at the Sweetwater County Speedway, located at the Sweetwater Events Complex.
With summers packed full of motocross match-ups, stock car races and full-contact demolition derbies, nearly every weekend has something under the hood for you.
Stock car races are scheduled throughout June, July and August, with racers polling for the track championship as the checkered flag flies in late August. You’ll have several opportunities all summer to watch the pocket-sized power of Dwarf Cars U.S.A. as professional drivers scream around the track in these five-eighths scale replicas that pack some serious horsepower punch.
For those who prefer two-wheeled action, there are plenty of motocross and BMX races to fill your calendar with dirt-flinging fun. And if you’re more into the crunch of metal, the firefighter-union sponsored demolition derby usually takes place in mid-August.
