This is so far my favorite track with easy access and great viewing. We generally camp in the Mall parking lot, it's very reasonable, secure and again easy walking to the track.This past season the mall refused the camping and camping was directed to the adjacent field, they have been trying to develop this area for a few years now....

This track hosts 2 NASCAR races each year if you are into this sport this is a great place to go. There are many displays and exhibts during race weekend and lots to do for the entire family besure to bring ear plugs for the race.

Attended the Sunday NASCAR race in September. Parking was fine. We ended up pretty far away, since we don't mind walking. Parked at a bank with a canopy for $10. Well worth it to park in the shade. Keep in mind you can bring in a cooler which is a must on a hot day, as you will be in... More

When I go to the speedway I always go to see NASCAR. The views from the family section were great, but the food was okay and the restrooms were awful. If you have kids I recommend sitting in the family section. If you don't you will probably be stuck with abnoxious fans. All in all its very fun and there... More

My son was in heaven, riding with the track historian on the monster Mile. What an experience. We've done a few track tours and this was the best. Love seeing the monster (statue), too. He's HUGE. Our guide was wonderful and full of NASCAR scoop.

Get there early or you will spend 3 hours trying to park. Sunscreen is a must. Be prepared to do a lot of walking.
