I've been to Chicagoland Speedway many times to work the Indy car series which, unfortunately no longer races here. The staff is excellent, facilities are great for the media and for the fans. Sure wish I had a reason to return sooner than later!

I loved the experience very much. After the experience I really do commend the pros in nascar for what they go through during a two hour plus race. In my opinion they truly are athletes. They have to concentrate on the gauges, the bumper to bumper and door to door driving, the flag and light system, the spotter, the crew... More

For Christmas I bought my husband a NASCAR Mario Andretti Racing Experience drive through the school there. My husband is a late model stock car driver on a much smaller NASCAR scale, so I was excited to watch him race one of these modified cars at this track. We went with a friend who was also given a drive and... More

This was our first NASCAR experience, and we had a great time!!! My husband and I went with my sister and brother-in-law for the GEICO 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup on September 15, 2013. We are all in our mid 30s to 40s. First, you really have to arrive early as there is a ton to do and see. Everybody is,... More

We were there before 2012 to work for our son's high school's band, selling concessions. I am not personally into racing, but it was a fun place to be. I enjoyed the people and the ambiance! It was neat to roam the grounds and meet the booth sellers and racing celebs!

This is my back yard NASCAR Track. I go every year and never tire of this track. The seating is great and if you get upper rows you can see the whole 1 and 1/2 miles of racing. The food is not bad for track food either.

It was our first experience to a NASCAR race... certainly won't be our last. This place is enormous and the experience is unlike any other sporting event we have been to. We didn't realize how much time you could spend prior to the race walking through the souvenier haulers and the sponsors area. The bleachers were decent to sit on.... More

They still are lacking enough restrooms and food vendor prices are very high, but the race is what counts and this track delivers. Parking is pretty good and the facility is clean and welcomes fans with polite employees. There is plenty to do if you get early too. The only issue we had this visit was other fans not taking...
