Track Weather

The weather at the track is mild in the winter but spring, summer and fall tend to be very hot, often reaching over 100 degrees. Bringing a pop-up sunshade tent is a great idea, but be sure to tie it down since the wind picks up in the afternoons. Bring plenty of water, sports drinks and sunscreen so you can keep cool, hydrate and avoid sunburn, and earplugs are a good choice for spectators.

Thunderhill Grill

Enjoy a pre- or post-race meal at the track’s on-site restaurant. The menu features a variety of delicious options, from an omelet bar breakfast to prime rib dinner, country barbecue and everything in between. The restaurant can also host groups of up to 450 guests for catered affairs. Open Monday-Friday from 8am-6pm; Saturday-Sunday from 8am-10pm.

    Unauthorized vehicles are not allowed on the track. Barbecues ad grills are allowed, but open campfires are not. Leashed dogs are welcome, but please pick up after your pet. Walkers and bicyclists are allowed on the track after hours by permission only.
  • What are some tips for the track?

    If you’re visiting for a driving school or private driving event, it’s good to know that the track is very smooth with fast sweepers, long straights, and some blind turns. While the track is great for beginners, advanced drivers will still find it challenging and fun.
