This track is an easy from outside of Concord. You can expect traffic the day of the race but there is parking everywhere. It ranges in prices from Free to $30 plus. We parked on the side of the road - it worked out well but was hard to leave because patrols and police reduce the lanes in and out.

Waited until 15 minutes before the race was due to start before they decided to cancel due to rain. Most, people have a long drive to get to the track.

I visited the track twice with my dad, once on race day and once a few days before for a look around. We took the trackside tram tour because the over the wall tour was cancelled because of race week (watch out for this if you go when a race is on). The tour guide was very friendly and funny,...
