AAA Texas 500 TicketsThe AAA Texas 500 is an annual race in the NASCAR Cup Series held in Fort Worth, Texas. Drivers take to the track at the Texas Motor Speedway to prove their skills against one another. First known as the Dickies 500, it was acquired as part of a lawsuit NASCAR settled back in 2004. One of the few NASCAR races that’s held later in the day, one charming aspect to the race is that it frequently goes into the night while not being considered a night race. Ever since 2005, the AAA Texas 500 has become one of the truly iconic races of NASCAR. The winners celebrate by firing six-shooters into the air and lofting the cowboy hat-shaped trophy they receive. The fan experience is always full of excitement at the AAA Texas 500. Whether you're a fan of racing in general or you remember it from the comedy film Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, anyone who appreciates the sport of racing should pick up tickets to this year's race at StubHub.

When was the first AAA Texas 500?The first AAA Texas 500 was first held in 2005 under the former name, the Dickie 500, and the race was renamed starting in 2010. As a result of the Ferko v. NASCAR lawsuit in 2004, NASCAR gave up the Mountain Dew Southern 500 in order to establish the AAA Texas 500.
How long is the AAA Texas 500?Like the name would indicate, the AAA Texas 500 is 500 miles worth of racing, though the official course is actually closer to 501 miles. This usually works out to be around three and a half hours of racing per year and 334 laps not counting overtime or other factors that may shorten or lengthen the race time.
Who has won the AAA Texas 500?There have been many winners to come out of the AAA Texas 500 since it started up.

Jimmie Johnson has won more races than anyone else to date, holding the title five times in total with the first in 2007, then four times in a row from 2012 to 2015.
What's it like to see the AAA Texas 500 in person?Seeing the race in person is a fun and exciting experience which thrills tens of thousands of fans each year. Spectators and families gather to see the contestants give it their all during the race. There's a ton for fans to enjoy at the Texas Motor Speedway, from the delicious food to the track tours to the driver appearances throughout the day. When the race itself kicks off, you can soak in the atmosphere as people cheer on their favorite cars as they rocket around the track. Given the time the race takes place, the fact that things start in the day and end at night gives the impression of a truly grueling and unforgettable affair even at a total race time of under four hours.
Is tailgating allowed during the AAA Texas 500?Tailgating is a timeless tradition out at the Texas Motor Speedway and the day of the AAA Texas 500 is no exception. Tailgating tends to be mostly concentrated in the three main parking areas, those being the campgrounds, the free lots and the Pacesetter Pit Stop Park. All three of these areas are great opportunities to mingle with other fans, though the Pit Stop Park is closest to the track and features conveniences such as restrooms and a horseshoe pit for help enhancing the fun.
