Nichols, NY (WBNG Binghamton) It was a fight to the finish line one last time at Tioga Downs for the 2013 racing season.

The night went off with a bang as fireworks exploded in the night sky.

Fans said they had to get a few races in before next year.

"It's the last race, gotta' get the season in," Cheryl Strauss said. "I won't be able to come for a long time."

"I just love to watch them run. It's a good time," Nathan Karsenty said.

As part of the celebration, there were contests to win prizes, from a car to a laptop to gift cards.
