With 72,000 seats, the Kansas Speedway was the state’s largest tourist attraction when the International Speedway Corporation opened the $250m multi-purpose facility in July 2001. A sister-track to Chicagoland, the 15-degree banked tri-oval held both NASCAR Cup and Indy Racing League races in its first season. Floodlights were installed in 2011 and the speedway was completely redeveloped a year later with steeper, variable banking in the turns. Also new for 2012 was the 2.37-mile infield road course and Hollywood Casino that now overlooks Turn 2. Kansas Speedway was acquired by NASCAR in 2019.
