With the Over The Wall Tour, you have the opportunity to dine at the prestigious restaurant, The Speedway Club. This refined and elegant dining option holds a unique place both in North Carolina’s racing legacy and in the world of private clubs. The food is divine, but the draw is definitely the view overlooking the speedway, directly in front of the pit area. FANTASTIC!

The "Feel and Thrill" tour was awesome. It includes the tour at the infield track, drag track, and dirt track.The tour guide was enthusiastic and friendly. She really loves racing and talked about the speedway. It made the tour more fun and interesting. There's a huge gift shop with cool NASCAR and motor sport items which are pricey. The people we met here were all nice and friendly.
