Our 1.5-mile tri-oval is known as one of the roughest in racing that the best drivers love and others fear. Our track presents unique challenges drivers enjoy conquering and racing that produces memorable moments you'll relive for years to come.

  • Camping and bus service was convenient. All staff were nice. Not an easy place to buy scalped tickets. No outside beer allowed which was a disappointment.
  • Had a great time here. Had passes to visit the garage area and to meet couple drivers and be in the winners circle with Kurt Busch . Everyone we met in the camping area was nice and friendly. Will go back.
  • Great race track and run well. Glad to see the races are getting better to watch now. Cup races have been a follow the leader race for several years. Great race this year!
  • Close to home. It is some of the best action on the Circuit. Its always a great time with friends and family at the track. If you haven't been then my friend your missing out. Its awesome.
  • 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!
