Best thing to Experience! It is a high-speed racing venue where visitors can drive or ride along in an authentic NASCAR vehicle. It is called the Richard Petty Driving Experience! I have never gone so fast!

The Demolition Derby's are fun for everyone from 1 to 101, just remember ear plugs for the kids and those with sensitive ears. For those of us that remember Santa Fe, U.S. 30 & the like,,,it's a tease,a small reminder of the past. For those who are new to the track, it's pure, clean, loud FUN!! There is tailgating b4...

We were there for a fun run, so we never actually went in the stadium, but outside the facility was nice, clean and well maintained. I have run at another similar venue, and the course was so poorly maintained, I was concerned I would twist my ankle or worse. This course was primarily paved, with some gravel pats, but the...

Love traveling to the Chicagoland Speedway, great track and large concourse area with food vendors. The truck hauler area is always busy and has all the top driver's merchandise for sale. Parking is in a grass field just outside the track and an easy walk towards the track with gravel and pave roads.

I have been going to this track every race since the first green flag. You get an experience like no other. Now with NASCAR it is the first race to the championship, what more can you ask for in the mid west. You have so much to see and choose from before the race, Never a dull moment.

Long, long time NASCAR fan found on multiple trips there the racing boring. Cookie cutter racetrack made for the fans but forgot to make a track where there could be multiple lanes for racing leaving only follow the leader racing other than when there is a caution. No bad seats which are all over priced along food and drink. Long... More
