Spring Time at Maple Grove

After seeing all the pictures of flowers and the gardens at a Lancaster PA bed and breakfast, I’m sure you’re trying to hatch a plan to get your husband to bring you for a romantic weekend getaway. I have great news, because it won’t be as hard as you think, as long as you’re willing to let him have his fun too.  Maple Grove Raceway is only a short drive from the Amethyst Inn.  So after a gourmet breakfast and a brisk morning stroll through the gardens, you can head over to the raceway for a day of racing.

This Pennsylvania drag strip begins its fan series with the ADRL Penske Truck sponsored race. Qualifying takes place all day Friday and on Saturday morning with eliminations Saturday afternoon. Both nights there will be jet car and monster truck runs. You won’t want to miss this event, especially since it’s free and you will only need to pay for parking!

Pontiacs will be at the Grove on Sunday May 22, with both a car show and races. The Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series is the weekend of May 27 and even has fireworks on Saturday night. Drag racing has always intrigued me, because of the precise timing needed when that light turns green! I’m sure you have a favorite part of racing, whether it’s the sound of the engine, the speed of the cars, or the crowd going wild... This speedway has it all, so don’t miss the many events throughout the summer. In later months, the Grove is hosting MOPAR Action on June 25-26 and the Super Chevy Show on July 15-17.

With events planned throughout the entire year, you have plenty of opportunities to sneak away to Adamstown PA for a stay at a luxury bed and breakfast. The soft bedding and jacuzzi tubs will be a nice treat after a long (and noisy) day in the sun. Let yourself be pampered while your significant other recalls the best moments of the races that day! If you have a large family that’s interested in racing, then rent one of our vacation homes or cottages for a weekend. Start your engines and begin planning your trip to the races today!
