Not only a great track but easily accessible to the freeway. Its family friendly, we were able to do all the fun activities outside the speedway before the race and take the stuff back to our car before the race. They also allow small coolers in which definitely helps if you have kids. We called the track and got great... More

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 of drunken, loud fans jostling the kids were unfounded; in fact, I looked over to find my young son and a strange... 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.

Very clean & modern race track on the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit. Don't worry about the previous concerns of getting in and out that plagued the track in it's first years of hosting a Sprint Cup event. There has been a great improvement in the in/out traffic patterns as well as the widening of I-71 both approaching and leaving the... More

my first NASCAR event. walked around a bit and I don't think there is a bad seat here. Very clean from the parking lot to the entire concourse. Food & beer pricey as I expected. Brand new track that tested the drivers a bit - fun to experience that.

This was our 9th track to go to and we thought it was great. The grandstands were exceptionally clean. We had a great view from our seats. I don't know what the traffic was like since we stayed at the Ramada that is within walking distance. Overall, we really enjoyed the race at Kentucky Speedway.

For Christmas my boyfriend bought me a Mario Andretti Ride Along Experience. What a BLAST!!! I had the best time. We were originally scheduled for May, but due to the track being resurfaced we had to reschedule for July. We got there early, walked right up and checked in. Walked over to the wait area for the Ride Alongs. We... More

We recently went to the first Nascar race in aboutn17 years. Kentucky Speedway is close to our home ( Columbus area) and the day was quite fun. Tailgating are was well marked and I was impressed with the organization for park in ng. We aren't huge Nascar followers so we didn't go to the merchandise tent, so I can't really... More
