  • The track tour was not the best should be at least I place you can get out and take decent pictures the bus did not have enough windows. The museum was very nice plenty of cars
  • You want to experience speed? Do you want great southern atmosphere and hospitality? Are you ready to drink? This is the place for you. Bring your favorite cooler and beer but dont forget your sunscreen.
