  • Texas Motor Speedway is a race track located near Dallas/Fortworth. It is an oval circuit with a length of 2.4 km. Currently consisting of NASCAR and Indy Racing League races held. The curves have an angle of 24 degrees and so it is possible for the NASCAR cars with more than 320 km/h around the track to tear. The stadium is huge and there is room for just over 200,000 spectators! We had the good fortune to if any flock together with a super passionate guide a tour. It was really impressive and because we were alone, the Guide has us really will be shown and a few touches. The highlight was the ride on the circuit itself (3 laps)-it was really a unique experience that we will always cherish. Thanks dear Guide!!!

  • I just watched the Indy 600 and i had an awesome time! The ticket was $28 and general parking was free. The food and drinks were kinda expensive but you can bring your own beer and snacks in a cooler if you like which is awesome! The race was fantastic and i enjoyed it, very cool to hear those cars flying by at 200+ mph.
  • We live this track. We live in keller and it is sooooooo close to the house. We never have any problem getting in or out for any event. We try to come to every event they have. Friday night drags are awesome, indy car was incredible and nascar was awesome. Do yourself a favor and bring your family to the track and have some fun.
  • Only come here for the Friday Night Drags in the summer. They need to get another announcer, he really ruins it. He has terrible opinions, the stupidest jokes, and worst of all he can't flag to safe his life. He finches and causes everyone to jump the start. He is so bias against all vehicles except chevys. He has a know it all attitude but yet doesn't even know is cars. He called a Mitsubishi Evo a "Toyota E-V-O", no joke. Not every Japanese car is a Toyota. This guy is clueless about cars working at Texas Motor Speedway, how does a mistake like that get made. Such a douchebag.
  • It does not get any better than this. TMS is an amazing track with a grandstand to the infield tunnel. Great on site reserved and surrounding unreserved camping. Infield, garages are always a cart ride away with the right credentials. Beat track ever.
  • Having been to Atlanta Motor Speedway, and having experienced a rain cancellation there as well, I had a benchmark to compare my experience at TMS with. The facilities are typical SMI fare. All front stretch seats at least have chairbacks, and the upper levels have plastic folding chairs, though thaey lacked cup holders like the T1 premo seats at AMS. The staff were all friendly, and we even scored free pit passes from a social media meet up hosted by the speedway the day of the race. The food was good, but the Dickey's vendors' beef brisket sandwich was surprisingly so. The track's brewery, Audacity, currently makes and sells Checkered Past, a sweet and mineral-y ale, but it's not your only non-big-brand option; you can bring in a cooler with your own drinks instead, which I would recommend after realizing I was paying more than a six-pack price for one souvenir-cup serving of their beer. Perhaps they sell it in local stores? I'm not local to the track. The garage/paddock/pit passes, whichever nomenclature is correct, are worth it for those who have Thursday and Friday free along with Saturday. You walk inside the garage through the middle, between pairs of cars and their teams. You could basically read through their notes and printouts, play with their tools, or make off with a pushrod suspension component. I would highly recommend not attempting any such tasks. My main issue is with the part I would never physically use. The track is physically flawed beneath the surface, causing "weepers" from which absorbed water escapes back out, preventing a simple jet-dry from being effective. Several minutes of rain can result in several hours of drying time. In fact, once the showers during my visit had stopped, drying efforts went on until the race was postponed at approximately 11p local time. The next day, the same trouble spots were still being dried, which again delayed the start of the race from its 1p start time. After the race was called a second time for rain, a true downpour this time, several of the infield tunnels were flooded. Also, my experience at AMS had led me to believe that there would be elevator access at the top of the grandstand level, which would have been used for handicapped access; there was no such thing, and instead my group had to get through the torrent for shelter. Though it may not come as a surprise, the whole encounter felt like a NASCAR race day. A significant number of fans lacked that certain extra bit of kindness or flair or whatever it really is that makes chatting with one another so easy and positive. Maybe that was just the one family shouting and cussing at each other early in the second day. There was a mass of people at one RE trailer who blocked the entire walkway around the area outside the gates, while another trailer not 400 steps away had about 10 people in each line. Everyone and everything just seemed a little more unhappy. I hope a lot of it was just the rain. From an Indycar fan's perspective, I'm not confident I can recommend a visit with my limited experience. The other two venues I have been to so far, Barber and St. Petersburg, constantly offered experiences that were jaw-dropping. Aside from the garage layout and the sheer speeds of the cars on the oval, there wasn't much on offer. I found myself waiting more than watching, and I believe that has less to do with the persistent rain delays on that weekend than this review might read. Had the race gone off as planned, the only interesting thing to do the day of the event beyond the race itself consisted of the same fan activities that any other Indycar race day also has. I felt further from any action or interesting goings-on than I had felt in either other weekend, even if I was so close to accidentally hitting Marco Andretti's front wing with my ankle while in the garage.
