"Stock car races" United States of America Things to Do Tip by melosh

United States of America Things to Do: 953 reviews and 1,331 photos

There probably is nothing more American than the stock car races. Lots of noise, speed and excited people. They are very popular and draw a uniquely American crowd. I think they tend to be an all day affair. I would suggest avoiding the grandstands and trying to get around and do some serious people watching. It has been a long time since I have been, but I remember that the infield area was the place to be.

Unless you are a real race fan, it would be cheaper and probably just as fun to go to a small local race than to go to one of the big name races.
