In 1996, International Speedway Corporation began exploring the idea of building a track in the Midwest. Bonds were sold in 1998 and construction on the 1.5-mile tri-oval Kansas Speedway began a year later. Paving on the track begin in September of 2001 and construction was completed in the spring of 2001. Jeff Gordon won the first two Sprint Cup events there, starting with the inaugural race on Sept. 29, 2001. He holds the record for most wins at the Kansas Speedway with 2 Sprint Cup Series victories.
The Kansas Speedway seats nearly 82,000 spectators in the grandstands, but will eventually expand to 150,000 upon completion of the final phase of development. The facility has fan friendly access to 65 rows of seating, with a unique ground level concourse that allows spectators to walk down 30 rows (on grade) or up 35 rows (on structure).
The Kansas speedway hosts a variety of NASCAR and Indy races.
