The perfect pit stop for any driving enthusiast.. The Venue This 1,500-acre complex is considered one of the best in the U.S. by many drivers and teams, and since its inaugural 1996 season, seating has been expanded to accommodate more than 100,000 spectators. The 1.5-mile tri-oval superspeedway is the centerpiece of the facility, hosting NASCAR as well as IRL races, but there are numerous other tracks used more frequently, including a 2.5-mile road course, a drag strip (aka "the Strip") and an off-road track. The speedway's business complex is home to several racing schools and a museum run by racing legend Carroll Shelby.
The Experience The venue is huge, the cars are loud, and racing fans are raucous, so be prepared for a rowdy good time. Concession stands throughout the speedway offer nachos, hamburgers, hot dogs, beer and nonalchoholic beverages, and a number of independent vendors offer pizza, barbecue and other foods on event weekends.
