We close the main road (Millstone Rd) for the race, so you must access the track from Millstone Hill Rd.


From Rt-40 (Groton Rd.), turn right on Millstone Hill Road which is on the right BEFORE the Millstone Rd. main entrance.  Please park at the intersection of Millstone Hill Rd. and Millstone Rd. and walk down the hill to the race Start line. (Parking will only be at the top of the hill at the intersection of Millstone Hill and Millstone Hill Road. (no general parking will be at the bottom).)
