A thunderous roar often overtakes the Central Texas Speedway stadium. Whether caused by the sound of a guitarist's first power chord or the revving engine of a stock car, rushes of adrenaline flood over spectators. Held on a sprawling 29-acre complex, Central Texas Speedway makes an ideal outdoor venue for racing and live music. Here, rockers play to crowds of 20,000 plus and stock cars zoom around the 3/8-mile asphalt track.
Spectators can even step right into the shoes of their favorite racing stars. The Rusty Wallace Racing Experience puts visitors behind the wheel of a real stock car, while The Go Kart Speed school allows people as young as 13 to try their hands at racing Honda GX270–powered karts. Older racers can toast their victories at the onsite Car Bar—or perhaps continue the friendly competition at Central Texas Speedway's horseshoe and volleyball courts.
