  • I love coming here. It's a fan friendly atmosphere. Love going for opening weekend to drive the track. It was fantastic. All around fun place to go.
  • Great track. Set up on race day make everything convenient for food so you don't miss much race.
  • As a first time racegoer, my visit was a pleasant and memorable one. The facilities here are very nice and the views are excellent.
  • We always have a great time here for wine festivals. All the local winery's and tailgating in the parking lot can't be beat. Just bring lots of water as the wine tasting can hit you fast as you lose track of time. The local sheriff handles the event with a great deal of style and pro active engagement. A very fun event. Not for children. I dare you to try and leave with just one bottle of wine.
  • IMSA race weekend fantastic. Lots to see, easy to get around and well organized
