Went to see the Coca Cola 600, great seats, huge area, loud and fast. What more ould you ask for? Bathrooms were crowded but its a nascar race, the beer is only rented people. Concessions were slighly high, but the food was great. If you have not seen a Nascar race, check your first one out here!

This was a little pricey for a family of 5. Most places do not charge for small children but since you must bring their car seat, you have to purchase a seat in the van for each person. That being said, it was well worth it! It was an hour tour, with a very knowledgeable driver. He took us to... More

So much better than on TV. The place is enormous and every seat is great. Facilities are clean and the amenities and easy to access. We'll worth the trip to see any kind of racing and the tour is well worth it. We went on a non race day, walked right in, no fee to browse around and there were... More

A great place to see a NASCAR race! The giant screen is helpful to keep track of the action! The concession prices, however, are outrageous!

My husband and son recently went on the $12 tour. They loved the van ride on the track, seeing the dirt track, and the drag strip. We aren't huge race fans, but it did pique my son's interest to come back to for a race. We would recommend to visitors!

Took this tour with the family. Our tour guide was an absolute gem! Older lady who knows how to bank a van on turns and can drag like nobody's business! She was wealth of Speedway information! Thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Don't miss this! Took the $12.00 worth every penny!

We've seen the movie Days of Thunder so we thought we knew what to expect by signing up for the tour; however, our imagination was blown away by riding in the third row of a 15 passenger van as it rotated and hurtled around the oval track at a dizzying 65 MPH pace that left us breathless! The buildings around... More
