Andretti Racing Experience
Jun 2020
I received a Ride A Long package as a Christmas 2019 gift. My ride was June 20, 2020 at Kentucky Speedway on a 98 degree day and in the middle of the COVID crisis. There was a shaded area but no fans were provided so the air was hot and stagnant. There were public water jugs that all were touching, along with plastic cups that all were touching. No sanitation witnessed. Masks were being carried but not worn by spectators and workers. Helmets and cars were not wiped down or sanitized. There was a great deal of miscommunication among the workers in which I was directed to wrong waiting lines, given wrong identification wristlets, and almost shorted 4 laps paid for in advance. I paid for 6 laps and they attempted to stop my ride at 2. Again, there was complete lack of communication among the staff. We had to remind them again of our package and had to keep showing them our paperwork, which I highly recommend taking! I am glad I had an Indy car experience but I would recommend doing the experience with another organization / provider. I did not leave impressed by this corporation.

love racing
Aug 2019
I love how no matter where you are sitting in the stands you can pretty much see the entire track so you don't miss any of the action. Love coming here. Close to home and easy to get in and out of with traffic

Night racing in Kentucky
Jul 2019 • Friends
Kentucky Speedway is a great track to visit to watch a stock car race. I highly recommend visiting Kentucky Speedway. The weather was very hot for the Quaker State 400, but the start of race begins in the shade so as the race progresses the sun goes down and it cools off. There isn't a bad seat at Kentucky Speedway as the entire track is visible. Traffic coming to and leaving the traffic is actually good.

July NASCAR Weekend
Jul 2019 • Couples
We visited for the Quaker State 400 night race. There wasn’t a bad seat in the house and the parking is close and free! The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 on my review was because the concessions on the upper level closest to my section were closed so we either had to go to the main level or several sections over. Overall great experience and would return if I’m ever in the area again.

Good day at the track - no beer allowed in coolers
Jul 2019 • Family
Our first time at this track to watch the Quaker state 400. Coming from Ohio, we drove past the 1st track exit to the 2nd exit at Route 1039. There we found another track entrance with parking close to the grandstands. Plenty of room for an e z up. Turned out that it was very easy to get out of the track after the race from that back entrance. Parking was well organized. It was a very sunny and hot day and the fan area outside the track had multiple tents with large cooling fans. They definitely took care of the guests in the heat. It was much cooler once we went into the track. We hung around under the seats until the race started. We were in section 6 row 14 at turn 4. Good seats. Easy to see the cars. There were seat backs on the aluminum bench seats but I was glad we brought our own seat cushions - they don’t allow seat cushions with arms. They allow hard sided coolers at this track but no outside beer. Plenty of beer to buy at the track but you can’t bring your own beer inside the track. You can bring food, pop, water.

Quaker 400 2019
Jul 2019 • Couples
We attended the 2019 running of the Quaker 400 Nascar Cup race. Great event, the whole show was easy to access, easy to find your way around, very clean and well presented. Definitely a highlight of our trip. Question; What happens if they turn right?

To start the day out the weather was not so good but after going thru the drivers class and getting behind the wheel to drive it was such an AMAZING feeling. The entire staff at the track was also AMAZING I highly recommend this to anyone it is a feeling you will never forget and it will be a memory that will last a life time HIGH FIVE TO Y'ALL !!!!

Great event, well run track

We were here for a "Drive The Track" event and it was a real blast. Just coming thru the infield tunnels was a treat for a car guy like me.
