Great facility. Easy access from I 55. Facility is much improved since re-opening. New owner has made improvements each year since new opening.

What a beautiful September day to enjoy the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. From the time we pulled into the parking lot, the day went without a glitch. You can choose whether to ride along or experience driving solo. All staff were professional and very helpful. Overall, it was a great birthday with cherished memories. .

I had enjoyed various types of racing at Gateway over the years, but it wasn't until this past May until I truly realized how awesome it really is. My wife bought me a ride along package for the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. I got it on Christmas and I figured what better time to use it than the day before... More

We bought my dad a shootout racing experience for his graduation present. We were able to get an awesome deal from a black Friday deal. We arrived at the track and everything was well laid out. While my dad was checking in, he decided to buy me a ride along deal. The ride along was awesome and my driver was... More

Good venue for watching or participating in racing action. Until recently I've been only a spectator. Have seen the NHREA Dragster Event (which is Excellent), truck races, rally races, Mopar car show events, and swap meets. Nothing beats the opportunity to drive on the track. Took the Rusty Wallace experience last year and it was the BEST. If you love... More

Came here for nhra event which was great but parking here is absolutely abysmal. There is no obvious plan, have been to plenty of races and spent more time trying to park than any other facility I have been to.

This track was awesome while the NASCAR Nationwide series still ran there; however, I haven't been back since they stopped. I loved the setup of the track and grandstands, although the free parking is pretty far away. The only thing I didn't like about this track was that the last time we visited we were directed out of the track... More
