Built around a state-of-the-art 3.4-mile circuit track with capacity for 120,000 fans and an elevation change of 133 feet, the facility is designed for any and all classes of racing – from motor power, to human power.

  • Visitor attractions that include an expansive live entertainment space, retail center and museum
  • A center with research facilities and robust services and amenities to power a broad range of business, technology and education allies
