  • Attended the Quaker 400 in July with all six kids, including the 7 year old Johnson fan. I had never been to a NASCAR race before and was pleasantly surprised at how friendly the fans were. My fears o...  more »
  • All seats are where you can see entire track, coolers allowed but no glass, not a problem with traffic as it used to be. 
  • Really nice track just off the highway easy to get to. You can see the entire track from the tower easily. They added banking to the corners so the racing is better than ever.

  • I'm only 14 but I've gone to many races and this one was by far my favorite. Everyone was nice, there were concessions everywhere, and the bathrooms were very nice. As for the racing, they did an amazing job to prepare the track because the race was very exciting. Lots of action and a great finish. If there is anything they can improve, it would be the traffic getting out. Still hands down a 5-star track.
  • Great facility! We had an unexpected need for a part time wheelchair and the ushers were very accommodating letting us leave the chair in their area since we did not have ADA tickets. The track also provides ADA shuttles so getting around outside the track was easy. They even gave us a ride to the infield to avoid the escalator/stairs to the pedestrian tunnel. We went in 2016 after the re-pave and the racing was not back yet, but I think the track will age well.
  • Great track...I've been to Xfinity Series and Sprint Cup Series...both were awesome races. Lots of room to tailgate, cookout and bring the corn hole boards. I'm going every chance I get.
  • Our group has been attending NASCAR races at Kentucky Speedway since the inaugural event in 2011. We have endured the traffic fiasco of year one, the extreme heat, the bitter cold of the fall race, the severe storms, the always present challenge of getting out of the parking lot, but have always returned for more. That is now changing - we will not be back! Last weekend we parked as instructed, set up our canopies, coolers, etc. only to be later told by the "fire lane Nazi" we had to move because we were in the "fire lane" - a line scraped in the gravel. Last year we witnessed this person destroy someone's canopy because it protruded into the "lane". After some civilizednegotiation we agreed to move to another location - which meant packing all of our stuff back into the vehicles. We were assured the new space was ours, because the area had already been parked. We set up again, only to be told once again we had to move - this time by a KY State Trooper. He claimed they wanted to squeeze more cars in - never happened - the area was still empty when the race was over! Again we packed up and moved. Being made to move three times, even after following parking instructions, was ridiculous. Fire lanes are important, as we saw by the burning truck, but someone at Ky Speedway needs to get parking under control. We have attended races at other tracks and never had a problem - set up once and enjoy the day. Next year we will be at another track! Unfortunately Kentucky, you've lost some more fans, and judging from the attendance last weekend, that is something you can't afford to do.
  • We went for the Mario Andretti Ride Along, which we purchased from Groupon! What a fun event! The Speedway was efficeint and easy to get to (although I know that's not the case during races) and the facilities were open so you could explore a bit.
