As a sister track in a rural area, we can attest that you learn from your early experiences. There's still the occasional fan that complains it takes too long to get out of the parking lot here at NHMS, but most fans are quick to remind them that with 100,000 people departing the same area, it does take some time. In general, fans at "The Magic Mile" think that the traffic flow around the track moves in a timely fashion considering the circumstances.
After having hosted a race, Kentucky has had time to reflect on what didn't go well and make the necessary changes during the offseason. Will everything go perfect? No, probably not. This is our 20th year of hosting Cup races at NHMS and we still have a thorough analysis of how we can improve the fan experience, especially in terms of traffic flow.
