Why attend a NASCAR race?
If you've never been to a NASCAR race, it's time to attend!
It's all about the experience!
The experience of a NASCAR race day is unique to any other event you might have attended. We've seen many first-time fans that got dragged to a race with no interest in the sport, and left asking the person that brought them when the next race would be and if s/he could go again.
So, what sold them?
Race Day Experience
Not a big fan of racing (yet)? You don't have to be to have an amazing day at NHMS. A visit to NHMS transcends the three hours of racing and encompasses an entire day of activities. The fans tailgate bigger and better than any major football university in the country, often starting with breakfast.
The Fan Zone setup just south of the track gives visitors the unique (and free) opportunity to interact with the brands of many of our partners. Additionally, we have a pre-race concert and offer a pre-race pit pass that allows you to get frontstage for the concert and driver introductions to feel like you're a part of the experience, not just a spectator.
When you attend other sporting events, you'll use your eyes to watch and your ears to listen, but have you ever been able to feel or smell another sport? Probably not, so it's time you attended a race! Here you can feel the ground shake as the field takes the green flag and smell the burning rubber and revving engines of the cars.
Despite the stereotype, NASCAR is much more than cars just turning left. Try renting a FanVision or Racing Electronics scanner (we can offer either at a discounted rate with your ticket purchase). These give a unique perspective of the conversations going on with the teams during the race, and gives insight to their race and pit strategies. Just be mindful ... we take no responsibility for a driver's choice of words in the heat of a bad moment.
