Its recent addition, Burnout Alley, is the new home to 52 luxury motorcoach spots located along the speedway’s backstretch. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Nationwide Series, and Camping World Truck Series each run two races a year at the track in addition to an Indy Racing League IndyCar Series race.

Recognized as one of the most modern speedways in the world, Texas Motor Speedway is full of action-packed events nearly every day of the year.

Located in north Fort Worth at the intersection of I-35W and Highway 114, the superspeedway is one of the largest sports and entertainment facilities in America.

With a seating capacity of 159,585 and an infield area with a capacity of approximately 53,000 people, Texas Motor Speedway can easily host over 200,000 guests for a single event.
