This was our first visit to this track. We try to visit a different track every year and decided we'd see how the 4 wide was. Although you really have to pay attention to what's going on, it was awesome! All that power at one time, WOW!! The track is so nice. Very well maintained and clean.

Recently attended the 4Wide NHRA nationals from Australia and they did not disappoint. The only venue on the world where 4 cars drag side by side anywhere! Plenty of places to eat and make sure you upgrade to a grandstand seat for ease of viewing!

Don't like that they've started charging for parking. Tickets are high enough without having to pay to park. Wish they had a better parking situation for handicapped. Handicapped parking is up a hill and the shuttles//trams cater more to the parking across the street than to the handicapped section. Had to wait 15 minutes to get a ride back up... More

This track is far better than what we have seen in Gainesville. The access tunnels are one of the best features I have ever seen.

Went on their hour van tour option (I think $10.00) and saw the Speedway complex spread of 20,000 acres from a comfortable spot with a few walking stops too. Wow. So much, so complex and so huge. I am not a NASCAR fan but I do appreciate cars and all the stuff that goes with them. What a fascinating hour,... More

Was fortunate to have a business conference at the speedway..We used the media center as our classroom.. There is a $5 track tour that leaves on the hour from the gift shop. Had lunch at the Speedway Club restaurant. Great food and atmosphere over looking the entire track.
