  • Awesome opening day Sunday! Weather was great and the people were really nice! Three laps around the actual track were really fun! We had a cool group to run with! Maybe I'll drive next year! Can't wait for racing to start up there!
  • This is the most memorable and exciting racetrack in the United States in my opinion. It is nestled in a town that celebrates the racetrack and its visitors instead of resenting them. The track has undergone a repaving not too long ago and it still hosts several exciting professional racing events including NASCAR & IMSA. But my favorite events are track day events where you can drive your own car at this world class track. The corner workers are excellent and the facilities are excellent overall with the exception of public restrooms, which are barely adequate.
