Young inexperienced staff with no knowledge of major racing events. Might be okay for small amatuer stuff. Staff is rude and just guess at answers instead of taking time to find the correct answer. A few times, I've tried to communicate with them and never hear back from anyone. Parking is far away. Sitting in the main grandstand, you can't... More

This place has been a family all time favorite, for many years now. The track has been around for what feels like forever. It is a safe place for locals and professional drivers alike to test out, soup up and drive their cars, trucks and cycles, as fast as they can get their vehicle to go. As a die hard... More

Called ahead to be sure go carts were open. Got here and they were closed for a private party. Wish whoever we talked to had had better information. We wasted our morning.

Good venue. It was neat that they had go carts for the kids to rent and race. It was not a race day so none of the food stands were open. It would have been nice if they were because it was so dang hot that we could have used it and they probably would have made some decent money... More

Great facility. Easy access from I 55. Facility is much improved since re-opening. New owner has made improvements each year since new opening.

What a beautiful September day to enjoy the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. From the time we pulled into the parking lot, the day went without a glitch. You can choose whether to ride along or experience driving solo. All staff were professional and very helpful. Overall, it was a great birthday with cherished memories. .

I had enjoyed various types of racing at Gateway over the years, but it wasn't until this past May until I truly realized how awesome it really is. My wife bought me a ride along package for the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. I got it on Christmas and I figured what better time to use it than the day before... More

We bought my dad a shootout racing experience for his graduation present. We were able to get an awesome deal from a black Friday deal. We arrived at the track and everything was well laid out. While my dad was checking in, he decided to buy me a ride along deal. The ride along was awesome and my driver was... More

Good venue for watching or participating in racing action. Until recently I've been only a spectator. Have seen the NHREA Dragster Event (which is Excellent), truck races, rally races, Mopar car show events, and swap meets. Nothing beats the opportunity to drive on the track. Took the Rusty Wallace experience last year and it was the BEST. If you love... More
