The I-35 Speedway is going dark! Yes, we are part of the 70-mile-wide swath of the United States that will experience the once-in-a-lifetime solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21.

The moon’s shadow will be racing across I-35 Speedway at 1,900 miles an hour, so for two minutes and seventeen seconds on Monday around 1:09 p.m. the I-35 Speedway will turn dark, temperatures will drop and we can observe the aurora of the sun.

Being as we are in a great location to view the total eclipse, I-35 Speedway will be available for parking for a nominal fee of $25 per car load. Want to spend the night, primitive camping (no hook-ups) is available for $50 a night.

Additionally, we will have the Trackside Bar & Grill open where you can come for breakfast or lunch and get your preferred spot before the event starts. The Trackside Bar & Grill will have eclipse based specials.
