I don't have any complaints about the actual physical features of the speedway, it is very nice, and I have had some very nice experiences here. Here is the 1 issue I have, and I think it is pretty bad. I couple years ago, my ex-husband and I went to the races for a Friday evening race. He drove with... More

I'm a long-time student of racing schools. Of the eleven racing and off-road schools I've attended, some more than once, Rusty Wallace's was operated in the most efficient manner. I would recommend it to anyone who would appreciate a well-taught session on how to drive a stock car along with all the safety situations to avoid, with the sole purpose... More

This past weekend 13 of my family members took my dad to the joliet speedway for the RWDE to celebrate his 80th birthday. Most of my family had a 7 hour drive to get to the speedway. After a major scare of our session being cancelled due to weather issues, we drove to the facility and were so overwhelmed with... More

We've gone for the last few years and always have a good time. The place is surprisingly clean especially inside the track. The grounds aren't bad but if it's rained the night before don't park in the grass without 4 wheel drive. The portapotties are actually tolerable even on the second day. You can bring a soft sided six pack... More

Not a big fan of NASCAR but had a great time again when I went with my sister and a few friends. Live events are always much better than watching it on the TV. Anyhow, go early so you can walk around and enjoy all the sites with the different trailers set up for the drivers and different contests that... More

We found the facility to be excellent in every way. The shuttle services were good, and I am glad they were available, as the place is huge. There were two things that bothered me. The only tickets available started at $120. I think that's a bit pricey for an event that lasts for three hours. The other thing to be... More

View of the track is good from all seats. Need to work on getting people in to the track. Traffic was backed up a mile waiting to get off of I-80.Pretty strict on what you can bring in compared to other tracks.

NACAR fans--What can we say? A bad day at the track is better than a good day at work!! Well, it wasn't a bad day at the track at all. We stayed in Glen Ellyn IL which is about 40 min.from the track. We left the hotel at 9 am. That being said, it took us two hours sitting in... More

This facility is pretty good but has it's flaws. For one, the food and beverage lines were very long. We've been to the track four times and this was the worst I've ever seen it. Also, the restroom lines were constantly long during Sunday's race; this has been a problem since the track opened. The worst experience however, was the... More
