Niblock Homes has an new home site called Waterford on the Rocky River. As best I can determine it is about 7 miles (as the crow flies) from their site to the Lowes speedway. Can anyone tell me how it is to live in that area in general but especially when he speedway is open? Lowe's appears to have events from early Sep. through the first of Nov. Noise can travel pretty far so if you live around there can you tell me if race day noises (especially drag racing) can be heard? What is the traffic like when they have events? What about the people who attend these events? Hate to stereotypical but the "racing crowd" is sometimes held in a bad light so that's why I ask.

My parents live in the old part of Concord. Other than the traffic they really cant hear the noise. there are a few neighborhoods that back right into the speedway that I am sure can hear the crew cheif talking during the race.

Crowds can vary but with any big event your going to have your idiots.

I live in Concord, and if your tring to travel past/around/near the track its a nightmare! However, once you become a native you learn the ways around the mess. Even with the twice a year overload in this area more and more people are moving here and loving it. I would advise you to stay toward the west side of Concord area, to avoid the problems. Keep in mind these problems bring in a huge amount of revenue to the area and in part help keep the local econmey stable.

I just moved to a house about the same distance away, I haven't heard anything. However, I haven't been here yet during a big race (at least I don't think I have). But I definitely haven't heard anything from their smaller events. I think that far away it may, if anything, just be a quiet hum in the distance during the loudest drag racing events. Also, I'm not really into racing, but supposedly they have small weekday races during the summer that are just a few dollars to go to, that should be fun!
