I actually worked there as a Bartender in the suites. What's great about that is you have opportunity to learn and enjoyed NASCAR up close and personal as well as enjoying great food which is prepared by my employer Levy restaurants.

We were at the Speedway for the Good Guys Car Show. We enjoyed the track and the show. Employees working were all helpful and friendly. The food and drink prices were way too high.

We went for a night race and it was cancelled because of rain and rescheduled. I got emails every day with updates and track conditions! The parking was so organized and everyone was so incredibly friendly and helpful. Prices were average for a race event and food was pretty good

Very nice tour of all the race tracks. You get to actually ride in a van on the various tracks including the main track. They also tell you the history of the track and info on all the various owners. Very good tour for the price, even if your not into Nascar.

Good seats everywhere! I like turn 4, where the action usually is! Nice staff and gate people. Parking is good, food is good, and restrooms are plentiful! Great racing, lots of steps to get to seats, but good views. World's largest TV screen!

I was just passing by Charlotte, NC and I decided to stop and see the speedway property. Upon visiting the gift shop I found their 2:30 tour with Katarina had open seats in just 20 minutes. The cost was an unbelievable $10 for age 55 and over! Katarina was an OUTSTANDING HOST and an INCREDIBLE DRIVER. Katarina was EXTREMELY enthusiastic... More

Plan on a lot of walking. Place is big, and hard to get around. Nice facility, but tough when raining. Would return.

When you just see the size of this speedway you realize that this is big business. They have tours and you can even drive by yourself or ride with a driver on this track. Look up NASCAR Racing Experience and plan a visit. Great souvenir shop. Lots of other racing associated experiences nearby. Hendricks Motor Sports campus is very close.
