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

Second year visiting here. Love it every time. Very family friendly. Wasn't a huge fan of them removing some of the seating. But can understand why, you can see the whole track now, no matter where you sit in the stands. Love some of the vendors, they were all very nice.

Love coming to the races here. This was our 3rd year coming to the Chase Race. Parking is easy, but leaving is another story. Need to have a better exit plan. Food is not prepared the same on each floor. Need to check their food vendors.

We read a lot of reviews saying parking was confusing. We arrived early and were able to easily navigate the parking area thanks to the parking map online. The facilities were nice, there were lots of pre-race activities and the race was great. The one disappointing part was the food. The hamburger and fries were cold and didn't have much... More
