Loved this place. The museum was interesting. If you're a race car buff, it would be fascinating. The guided tour of the grounds was excellent. There were cars on the track during our tour so we couldn't get on the track itself. But standing next to the track while they zoomed by was awesome.
I recommend anyone and everyone to visit and check out the museum.. The museum is not only very informative but also very clean and organized.

Excellent customer service. 10/10.
