  • Camping and bus service was convenient. All staff were nice. Not an easy place to buy scalped tickets. No outside beer allowed which was a disappointment.
  • Had a great time here. Had passes to visit the garage area and to meet couple drivers and be in the winners circle with Kurt Busch . Everyone we met in the camping area was nice and friendly. Will go back.
