Texas Motor Speedway

Driving home to our campground from Fort Worth two days ago, I "blogged" that we passed Texas Motor Speedway along I-35. We were impressed at the size of this complex. As we're not race fans (of any kind), I had to do a little research to find more.

Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth is the second largest sports facility in the country.  Both Indy-style racing and NASCAR Nextel Cup stock cars run the course.  The speedway inflield alone is large enough for four Cowboys Football Stadiums. Yes, I had to read that twice too. 

190,000 rabid race fans can be seated simulaneously and there are 194 skybox VIP seats.
Last week when we checked in at our campground in Denton,  we saw lots of NASCAR signage.  More flags and banners are going up every day. I expect the campground will be filled to capacity very soon.   Turns out April 12-14 is Samsung Mobile 500 Weekend.  We do not plan to attend.
