It runs several local classes during the regular racing season (March – October). These classes include Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, Super Stocks, Sportsman, and Bombers. The races are usual held on Friday nights bi-weekly. The track has also hosted many regional touring series.
Five Flags hosted a Grand National (now Sprint Cup) race the year that the track opened. The race was won by Herb Thomas driving his Fabulous Hudson Hornet.
