As a person who is very interested in racing, I can't say I was disappointed. The tour was wonderful but a little expensive.

Made a 9 hour trip from Finger Lakes region of NY. Fridays nationwide race went smooth. Saturday was a whole other story. A week in advance the tracks Facebook page on more than one occasion suggested fans make use of a specific lot (I believe 7) and said lot would open at 6am. Made our way over at 6:30 am... More

Only way you'll see this is if you go to the race. We were told they had tours. Drove long way and planned just for this and all we got was to follow the . Pace car out to look at the track. Many hours on the for a few minutes of a peak. Very disappointed

As for visiting several speedways, I went during a common weekday, no races. Usually I find a gift shop at the side of the ticket place and pay for a guided tour exploiting local facilities and a ride on track. At the ticket place I've asked for the shop, no shop, and for the ride. The gentleman at the ticket... More

This was a great night. Aside from Tony Stewart's performance everything was great. There were 9 of us mostly from the Seattle area, ended up on the backstretch because of trying to book 9 seats together. Worked out great, plenty of food choices, bathrooms right below our seats and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house... More

Loved the track! Hated the drunks in the stands. Almost had fights, smoking, throwing beer cans. Not very family friendly.

I have been to many, many races here at RIR as this is my home track. I watched Richard Petty climb on the dozer and start tearing up the old half mile track. Luckily, along the way they figured out that race 2 was a bad idea in Richmond. Now we have night race which are the very best. Of... More

I love this place! I have been to over 25 races at 11 different venues and this is my HOME track. RIR goes out of its way to make the race week experience the best. It is fan focused and they go the extra mile. The access to the track this last weekend was a great idea and worked out... More

Of the many NASCAR race tracks we have been to this is one of the better and one of top five for putting on a great race. The food has much to be desired but parking and camping is pretty good. Entry and Exit seemed to go well and a pretty good midway area. The security is tight and only... More
