Love to tailgate, and watch the start of the Chase race! Get to the lot early to avoid traffic and get a good tailgating spot.

I went to my first NASCAR race with family including our 7 year old nephew. There was good traffic control getting into the parking area (went early) although we parked in a soggy field where at least one truck got stuck. The speedway is impressive, the race was exciting and very loud. Hearing protection is a must, although some visitors... More

First NASCAR experience and really enjoyed it. I've been to 3 Formula 1 races in Melbourne and I think the NASCAR was more enjoyable! You can view the whole circuit from the stands and the atmosphere was awesome. Before the race, we enjoyed browsing the merchandise shops and with our pit pass, we had a great time checking out the... More

My daughter and I enjoy the Cup races and the Chicagoland track is really nice and modern. It is way out in the middle of nowhere and the traffic control going into the track is non-existent. Get you ice and supplies before you get off the interstate. Unlike a lot of the tracks in the south, no need to pay... More

The people at the track are very helpful and good to you. The racing put on at the track is the best and fastest for miles around. The drag strip is called Route 66 and looks very nice although we attended a NASCAR Sprint Cup race. The hotels in the area will double in price at race time and some... More

The race was awesome. Please make sure to bring your ear protection. Seems extra loud there. Food was too expensive for what you receive. Nice selection in fan gear; tshirts, hats, sweatshirts, etc. Had a great time with the family though.

It's a 1 1/2 mile NASCAR track. Used to be part of the Founders group, but boring racing and super high prices, we just said enough. The place is beautiful, not doubt, but I just as soon watch from my house. If you like NASCAR that's the place to go I guess.

An excellent place to watch a race, and not a bad seat in the house either. This was our third time at this track (first Sprint Cup NASCAR race however). This is the closest NASCAR track from our home. The experiance was wonderful. Getting out of there was longer than getting in there due to the fact we were there... More
