Track Takeover. You’ve heard the name by now, for sure. “Your feet meet our pavement….” “The track is yours!” Our taglines sure are catchy, but they don’t quite tell you what to expect from this year’s event – or why ours is unlike anything else you’ve ever seen before.

We were the first to swing open our gates to the fans three years ago. Other tracks thought we were crazy when we thought up the idea – why are we giving away access that fans would pay for? Because for us, it’s all about the race day experience for the best fans in sports. We were so excited to bring that one-of-a-kind experience to our fans first – and for FREE.

So, we’ve had three years under our belts to make Track Takeover even better. Here’s what you can expect this year, driven by our friends at AAA.

  • 7:00 am – Parking Lots Open
  • 8:00 am – Grandstand Gates Open

Friends and Vendors:

All of this is hosted by Michael Blair, emcee extraordinaire. Plus, make sure to sign the start/finish line too, just hours before the green flag waves to kick off the TOYOTA OWNERS 400.

We can’t wait to see you there.

You check your email one day and find…it’s time for Track Takeover is coming BACK!

Why is time moving so slowly? You are counting down the days until you get back to the track.

Scrolling through Twitter, checking out all the new things to do and see, until…


It’s like you can’t read about it fast enough.

No other track has EVER done this before. Is it even real?!

Race day morning finally arrives are you’re up like:

Driving up to RIR like…

…when you see RIR in its race day glory.

You beeline straight for the track.


The band is rocking some classic tunes and everyone around you in just as excited as you are.

Look! Over there! Is that Kyle Busch’s show car?!

Exhibits for the kiddos, driver Q&As on the frontstretch…this is basically NASCAR heaven.

To top it all off, you leave your mark on RIR – by signing the Start/Finish line!

Just like this kid:

Finally, you head to your seats knowing you were just on the track before your favorite drivers hit the pavement.

Crazy. Freakin’. Cool.
