It's one thing to watch a race from the comforts of home. But seeing it for yourself in person? There is absolutely no substitute for being here live and experiencing a day at the track! Here are five reasons you need to be here in person in 2016 for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 NASCAR Weekend!

The Sights & Sounds

For some, it's from an infield campground space. For others, it's from the grandstands. Regardless, nothing beats the thundering sound of 43 stock cars roaring past you.

Driver access

Within hours of the race, you have a chance to see your favorite driver! Throughout race weekend, select drivers appear at sponsor displays and the fan stage in the Fan Zone as well as other locations around the Speedway! Plus, all attendees with a Sunday Pre-Race Pit Passes receive access to the stage front area for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver introductions. A location where you will be close enough to get some memorable photos of all of the pre-race festivities!

Tailgating

Do you have a secret family recipe for a dessert item or a tried and true way of grilling a favorite meat in your campground or tailgate spot? It's all a tasty part of being at the track! And who knows - you just may make some lifelong friends as many of our campers have been known to do over the years with many of their neighbors!

Cheer on your favorite driver in person

Whether your driver has legions of fans or you're one of a handful of loyal diehard supporters, the track is the only place that you and scream and shout for your driver as they race past you!

Creating Fans For Life

Remember that feeling that you felt the first time that you walked into a racetrack for the first time? Only by being at the track can you can pass that down to your friends or the young race fans in your family! And for those young race fans, we offer half-price admission in all grandstands for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 for children ages 17 and under!
