  • We had so much fun getting to go around the Speedway. We had several idiots in the group that ruined it for the rest of us that followed the rules. Next time we do a race track, we will have to have a driver's meeting so this does not happen again.
  • Spectacular facility. Clean, easy parking. Easy access of I-71. Racing is great. Nascar puts on a great show here under the lights.
  • Loved every moment of the experience! Make sure to get there early so you can tailgate before the race. Parking is free. We had great seats and could see the entire track throughout the race!
  • I camped in the infield during the Quaker state 400 NASCAR weekend in July and it was amazing. The facility is like new and the staff are everywhere to help you get around with golf carts or trolleys. The events all day like concerts and vendor displays were fun too and I can’t wait to go back.
  • Good track and rocking camping/RV areas. I recommend Ponderosa although camping along the backstretch offers an up close and personal experience close to the action. The backstretch area also has power and transportation comes by frequently. Keep in mind that this track does not allow guests to bring alcohol inside.
