Texas Motor Speedway Infographic – Living Large

Texas Motor Speedway, with permanent seating of 128,655 and an estimated overall capacity of 181,655, is one of the world’s largest sports facilities located in Fort Worth, Texas. So how expansive is the enormous infield that is encircled by the high-banked, 1.5-mile oval that plays host to NASCAR and INDYCAR racing annually?

At just over 84 acres, the speedway’s infield can fit the venues of ALL of Texas’ major professional sports franchises – the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans; MLB’s Texas Rangers and Houston Astros; the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets; and the NHL’s Dallas Stars – in its massive infield as well as the state’s largest NCAA football stadium (Texas A&M’s Kyle Field) for good measure.
