Fun Facts

Unique Lap Counter: Texas Motor Speedway is the first speedway ever to display the laps in the race counting down AND also counting up. Two separate panels on the scoring tower in different colored lights indicate how many laps are left in the race and also how many laps have been run in the event.

How Enlightening: Texas Motor Speedway has enough permanent lighting to illuminate 11 NFL stadiums — an average of 2,000,000 watts for a nighttime event. A standard household plug is 120 volts — the speedway lights run on 480 volts each.

By the Numbers: Approximately 60,000 — 70,000 vehicles are parked on speedway property for a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. A Cup race will also see 30,000 — 40,000 fans camping on the speedway grounds.

Best Supporting Role: There are a total of 400 concrete columns and 600 concrete piers supporting the facility.

Recycling Riches: The front grandstand is constructed of 2 million pounds of aluminum and 15,000 tons of steel. The aluminum used could produce 61 million Coca-Cola cans.

Dirty Work: During original construction, workers moved more than 4,000,000 cubic yards of dirt at the speedway.

Hot Diggity Dog: In one year, enough hot dogs are sold to go around the 1.5-mile oval six times, that’s nine miles!

Patty Pillar: If all the hamburgers served in one year at the speedway were stacked, it would be taller than a 74-story building.

Make a Splash: Enough Coca-Cola, Dasani water, coffee and hot chocolate are consumed each year at the races to fill the 34,000-gallon Texas-shaped pool at Lone Star Tower Clubhouse.

The Big Show: Four Cowboys Stadiums will fit in the infield of Texas Motor Speedway!
