The Texas Motor Speedway
The very first NASCAR event at the Texas Motor Speedway had a crowd to full capacity, which is an indicator of the popularity of this auto and motor bike racing track, just outside the exciting city of Fort Worth. The company which owns the site has responded with continuous upgrades and improvements for better quality racing, though the track is only of 1995 vintage. The turns now have uniform 24-degree turns, doing away with the original discrepancy of just 8-degree banks for specialized racing automobiles. The best NASCAR drivers aim to set speed records at this 1.5 mile track: Brian Vickers holds the record for the Texas Motor Speedway, having clocked over 196 miles per hour in a 2006 event.
The Samsung and Radio Shack 500 and the Dickies 500 are the two most famous Nextel Cup races at the Texas Motor Speedway. The Busch Series and the Indy Racing League also adorn this track each year, apart from the NASCAR events. Auto racing fans flock to Fort Worth in record numbers each year, and the Texas Motor Speedway goes the extra mile to keep every spectator delighted!
Corporate sponsorship is a big draw at this track, and there are many elegant opportunities to keep prized clients happy here. The entire track can also be rented for film shoots and for special events on days without racing. The Media Center also has an attractive layout and is replete with thoughtful touches and amenities.
This is not to say that the Texas Motor Speedway ignores small guys! Facilities for individuals and for small groups, on the contrary, rank amongst the best on the NASCAR circuit. You can even take a bus from downtown Fort Worth to the race track, with special discounts on ticket fares on NASCAR days. The camping facilities are out of this world, and there is plenty to see and do before races and between events. Spectators can visit pits, interact with drivers, and even take laps on the track in their own cars. The latter facility is used to raise money for charities for children. You can have a good time for a noble cause at the Texas Motor Speedway!
