Came with my family and friends. Two of us did the Drive Experience and was very fun. Go anyone that likes to go fast you gotta do this then. Also, we kids and other adults did ride along hitting 180 MPH. If you drive they will go about 150 MPH. Great experience and highly recommended!

We visited the speed way for an event other than NASCAR. The stadium was very nice and the track was fun to drive on with a very high bank and I know nothing about that! They had a nice well kept infield and places that served food. I would love to see a race there.

If you're a race car fan this is not to be missed. We did the longer two hour tour and it was well worth it. We got see to many of the behind the scenes rooms and even sped around the track in the van.

Have been to the track for Auto Shows and Summer Shootouts, its all good fun. Parking fees are not too steep and inside concessions are OK prices compared to the local arenas although the choices are limited to basic County Fair type eats. Big place if you've never been there, much larger than an NFL stadium.

We came from Germany to see the Coca Cola 600 race. The race track is smaller the e.g. Daytona. Inside it was a bit confusing. There were not so many sitting options or places to eat. But the food selection behind the grandstands was very good. Parking was close by and well organized.

If you have never experienced top fuel 4-wide, now is time to try it. Zmax Speedway Spring Nationals is the only time of the year you will experience heart-pounding, earth-quaking, mind-blowing power of four vehicles traveling down the track at one time. If you like drag racing, you'll love this yearly event. Go for it, I guarantee you it's one... More

I didn't go during a race weekend, but instead chose to take a weekday tour. Not only was my tour guide friendly and knowledgeable, but she took us roughly 90MPH around the track, which was one of the highlights of my vacation. Definitely a great time!

Whatever really well-kept Speedway. Lots of parking. And outer buildings with food menus and shopping too. Very convenient off of 85.
