  • Experienced the IMSA Michelin Weather Tech Challenge 2019 and this is by far my favorite track to visit. The grounds are unbelievable and everything is maintained very well. I will definitely be back next year.
  • This is a great destination to visit. The camping is very good with a number of different areas available. The views from most of the turns are really good. Even when there's no race event going on there are quite a few things to do. Everyone was super friendly that I ran into. The bathroom's were great and the showers were nice with hot and cold water. Really a surprising place for its location.
