TAILGATING INFORMATION:

Texas Motor Speedway is big like most things in Texas so prepare to have a big time while tailgating at your favorite NASCAR event. Tailgating in Texas is similar to most other tailgating events except beef is king and the bigger the better. If you are doing a weekend at Texas Motor Speedway you may want to consider a beef brisket or a huge rack of ribs along with some Texas BBQ sauce. Cold beer is essential but remember to drink your water. The Texas heat while tailgating can dehydrate you. also some sunscreen, at least for the first day will save you from miserable days to follow. Although Texans are known for rowdiness, be kind to your fellow tailgaters and respectful of the ones that want to get some sleep. At the Texas Motor Speedway there are no open fires allowed but grills, both charcoal and gas are permitted but again be respectful of the environment and be careful with the fire.

TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY

Texas Motor Speedway is a speedway located in the northernmost portion of the U.S. city of Fort Worth, Texas -- the portion located in Denton County, Texas.

The track layout is very similar to Atlanta Motor Speedway and Lowe's Motor Speedway (formerly Charlotte Motor Speedway). The track measures 1.5 miles around and is banked 24 degrees in the turns, and is of the quad-oval design, where the front straghtaway juts outward slightly.

The track is owned by Speedway Motorsports, Inc., the same company that owns Atlanta and Lowe's Motor Speedways, as well as the short-track Bristol Motor Speedway.

Very Fast Track

Based on qualifying speeds in 2004 and 2005, the Texas Motor Speedway was once considered the fastest non-restrictor plate track on the NASCAR circuit, with qualifying speeds in excess of 192 mph and corner entry speeds over 200 mph.

However, as the tracks' respective racing surfaces continue to wear, qualifying speeds at Atlanta have become consistently faster than at Texas (2005 and 2006).

Busy Race Season

Texas Motor Speedway is home to two NASCAR Nextel Cup races: the Samsung/Radio Shack 500 and the Dickies 500, as well as two Busch Series Races, the O'Reilly 300 and the O'Reilly Challenge and last but not least, the Indy Racing League race, the Bombardier Learjet 500.
