Justin's Kansas Tour Notes:
"Kansas Speedway has two Monster Energy NASCAR Cup (formerly Sprint Cup) Series race dates again in 2017 and we'll be there for both of them! This is one of the newest facilities on the NASCAR circuit. The facility is very clean and easy to navigate. Kansas Speedway also did a great job in terms of traffic flow. Our experience on our October tour the past couple of years has been driving right in and out of the track. Traffic here is great!
We use the Hyatt Place at the Kansas City International Airport (MCI), which offers a free airport shuttle for guests who might be flying in. The hotel offers breakfast each morning. Our guests always appreciate the amenities.
The weather is usually great for the races in Kansas. The average high temperature for May is 76, and the low is 57. You'll want a jacket in the evening. With RaceAway headquarted in Des Moines, IA, we consider Kansas Speedway our home track!"
