Rural Alberta, Edmonton
Castrol Raceway is located just south of Edmonton near the Edmonton International Airport. They offer a full season from May through October of Drag and Oval Racing, Motocross and special events like Annihilation Night, Rocky Mountain Nitro Jam Nationals, Monster Jam, Hot August Night, World of Outlaws: Oil City Cup and soooo much more. They are fully licensed and offer food service throughout the grounds with vendors and shops to keep you busy. They are a great place to take the family or to kick back with some friends and an ice cold Bud. There is no better place to spend a hot summery day in the Capital City than at Castrol Raceway.
I didn't take any of these tours - gotta say this up front ya' know :) But, I did meet a couple in my hotel who had just returned from one of the offered tours and couldn't say enough good things about this particular company. So, I decided to share this information with you!
Ken Sears Magic Time Tours offers 12 different tours in and around Edmonton and the Province of Alberta. Tours last from 3 hours, a full day, to overnight trips. All entry fees, taxes, and other charges are included. This couple had just returned from one of the full day tours into the Canadin Rockies and told me that Mr Sears was a wonderful, informative, and humorous guide.
Prices range from $40 for the 3 hours tours, to $185 for one of the full day tours. His overnight tour prices are not listed on the pamphlet i was provided as he adjusts the price according to the number of persons in the tour group..
All prices are based on a 2 person minimum. He will pick you up from your hotel, and deliver you back once your tour is complete.
