  • Excellent racing of many kinds of series, I have enjoyed all of them. The local charity or clubs sell a variety of foods and beverages and all are good. The improvements I have seen through 30 years are great for both the fans and the racers. I enjoy going around to the different corners all weekend long to see how the vehicles and drivers handle the corners and straightaways. Even in rainy weather the racing is exciting. The area businesses are friendly, helpful and informative.
  • Best track in Wisconsin and one of the top in the US. Find a club to get out on the track yourself. Awesome place for spectators to watch races. Great store too.
  • Truly an American treasure. Great staff. Great facility. Great events. Great drivers. Great racing. Zero complaints.
  • Tip - Arrive early and drive the roads that surround the track so you can scope out your ideal viewing spots. Between races, walk around the parking areas, you'll be amazed at the cars people bring! There is a good quick service spot at Turn 7 that serves beer and cheese curd - what else do you need? That same spot offers bench seating and a view of the braking zone for Turn 8.
  • We spend over 30 days a summer at Road America. Have had season tickets for over 10 years. Love RA.
