“Upscale and personal at the same time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This track is amazing. Every detail is pristine, and you cannot help but marvel at it all. Even just driving by it the sheer massiveness of the track is amazing. I am a Nascar fan, but this was only the second race I had been to. The first was Indy, and that place is a dump compared to TMS. We went to the night race in April, and it was still a little warm, but bearable. We also did something special called "Raceday University." Which gives you a ticket in the Speedway club grandstand (but you do not get to use their facilities.) You also get a pre-race pass to some of the tents where certain drivers give interviews, and there is food and beer etc. You also get a track pass to go on the infield for the pre-race festivities, driver intro's, concert, and the national anthem. The track pass was my favorite part of the whole deal. We were walking on the track, right next to pit road, and walking shoulder to shoulder with the drivers and pit crew. I do not know any other sport that has fans that close to their players. We even got to write a message to our favorite driver on the stripes of the track. Not sure if that was exactly legal, but everyone else was doing it!! Raceday U was worth it. I had to keep off one star because of a bad experience with the speedway club. We had a child in a wheelchair, and had to sit on the speedway club's deck rather than our seats. But they would not let us get drinks or food without exiting the facility and getting back in. But that is not something a normal person would deal with. This tract is worth going to see a race, and you might get to see some famous people too. We ran into kid rock, Captain Wild Bill, and the Duck dynasty guys. The races are scheduled when it is not too hot and also at night.

“Ride around the course like Smoke!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

TMS has a great setup. There is a tour of the racetrack you can take for a fee which includes a lap or two. Our car club does laps for charity in which various clubs run the track. The NASCAR races are fantastic!

The speedway is so nice and clean --- and the stands were hugh. We were there for a Team Texas Driving School. The pits area parking, stands were very clean. You can tell it is a nice and new speedway.

“Best fans ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Texas Motor Speedway never fails to thrill me. It is a well maintained facility with informed employees. The food, drinks, and admission may be costly, but it is not an every day occurrence. The fans are awesome! You can leave your things in the seats all day and no one will bother it. This is a wonderful venue! The only thing I would change would be to plant more trees. More shaded areas are needed for fans to relax. Maybe some picnic tables, too.
