When Kansas Speedway opened in 2001, it served as home to some of the fastest and fiercest competition in Kansas sports history. Since then, Kansas Speedway has become one of the most popular and most diverse motorsports venues in the country.
Kansas Speedway hosts NASCAR's premier series, the Sprint Cup Series twice a year along with the NASCAR Nationwide Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards. In 2013, GRAND-AM Road Racing is expected to start competing at Kansas Speedway on a newly added infield road course.
Each race weekend, some 73,000 people sit in the speedway's distinct purple and yellow grandstands to watch their favorite drivers compete. Another 10,000 or more people watch from the comfort of their motorcoaches parked in the track's massive infield. The newest of all the country's race tracks, Kansas Speedway boasts superior sightlines, convenient traffic ingress and egress and a streamlined flow from parking lots to the open and airy grandstand and its suites. The concentration of season ticket holders to Kansas Speedway come from a six-state area with a population of 42.1 million people. The average fan travels about three to six hours to reach Kansas City, Kan. Besides the racing, other weekend track events include high-speed driving schools where race fans can learn what it's like to be Richard Petty. Car shows, community functions and private parties make up the rest of Kansas Speedway's yearlong activity calendar.

We went to the Kansas Speedway where my husband got to ride 20 laps around the track! It was such an exciting time!
We also went to the recent Japan Festival at JCCC. What a great cultural experience! We were able to dress up in Kimonos. My daughter had a great time with that!
