I went here with my best friend when we were in the 5th grade. Hearing the roar of the engines and being able to see some other race cars before the race was great. I've continued to go to races here when they're scheduled and I always go here with my best friend.

Fun track to visit. trying to become a better place. On race day, traffic is still difficult. Plan on spending some extra time after the race to tailgate. Plenty of food vendors and very clean.

I go to the track every year. This Chicagoland track starts the beginning of the Championship series so that is very exciting too. Great food options, lots of places to get your Nascar memorabilia. Parking is always free too. Many options for people with rv,s, or you can even rent a tent!!! I get a seat near the first turn... More

Went there for a breast cancer awareness event. Most gates were closed and no public restrooms were available. This was my first time there and will probably not return.

We attended all three races on the weekend of September 16-18: the Camping World Truck Series, Xfinity Series, and Sprint Cup Series. Chicagoland has great sight lines for racing! Our seats were under the overhang, so we were sheltered from the sun, which made the experience even more enjoyable. The parking was well managed, and even though there were long... More

I have been going to the track for many years, the seats are excellent for viewing the race, you can see the entire track so you never miss out on any action. Management needs to share more info with staff and fans but the staff is extremely friendly and always willing to help.

We had a good time at the Truck races. Crowds are smaller so you can enjoy it all. We had good views even though we were in row 15.

Lighten up people, do you need 5 people in the same spot everywhere??? Got "carded", and directed and questioned everywhere we went. Nice facility, but customer service is important, and it doesn't happen there.
