As you drive through the dragway and on to the speedway, you can tune into 91.1 to hear holiday music, trivia, and NASCAR drivers talking about their Christmas memories and traditions.
The Christmas light display begins on the zMax Dragway. We went on a Monday night, so there was very little traffic. As soon as you get on the track, you turn your lights off and follow the other cars in your lane. There are festive and fun light displays along both sides of the road. The 3 adults in our car all agreed they weren't the most extravagant light displays, but for the 4 year old, it was pretty amazing. E was in awe the whole ride getting even more excited with each new display. Her favorite was a unicorn family and some igloos.
Here are a few light displays you will see on the dragway:
Christmas Village is also on the racetrack but was closed when we visited.
Here are some pics of the track:
