- Definitely Fontucky. Beautiful speedway full of excitment [sic] and fast cars – DIANA D.
- Only when you're at an actual race in real life can you truly comprehend why this sport is so appealing. Watching NASCAR on TV really does not do the real thing justice. You don't get to experience the real sense of speed. – Joseph A.
