    opened in 2000, but did not host its first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race until 2011. After the long awaited Top NASCAR series event was scheduled it was marred with many logistical problems. As many as 20,000 fans did not even get into the speedway due to a massive traffic jam. Many fans still en route by the halfway point of the race were asked to turn back in order to make it easier on those leaving the race. Due to inadequate parking, several fans were turned away, even though they had tickets. Those who made it to the race were only reported having to wait half an hour or more to use the restroom due to a shortage of facilities.
