Just wondering cause my DH & I enjoy the speedway & drags but know the noise is very loud for the kids. What age do you think it's appropriate ? Probably when they learn not to take
Ear plugs out if their ears ?

You can buy noise cancelling ear muffs specifically for infants...
I think my parents started taking us when my brother was about 3.

I haven't taken my son, it is not something I am in to. However we went as kids, I was probably around 8yo? My younger brother would have been around 5yo. Pretty sure he had ear muffs but the rest of us just got used to the noise! lol
I would definitely go the ear muffs no matter how old they are.

Both DP and I are heavily into gravel rally (I competed in one before I knew I was pregnant and wondered why I got carsick, oops!), this little chicken will be going to her first rally at about 3 months old. We've got some baby earmuffs for her, can't for the life of me remember the brand now!
