Duck Commander 500

Texas Motor Speedway: those who have been there—drivers and spectators alike—know that it’s not just a venue, it’s an experience. A staggering, unforgettable one at that. “The Great American Speedway” motorsports facility, recently named the 2015 Track of the Year by Speedway Motorsports, Inc., is host to an action-packed series of races each year, including the Duck Commander 500.

To put the Duck Commander 500 into perspective: it’s the largest event held at one of the largest sports facilities in the United States. Over 180,000 spectators and a national television broadcast audience gather in a frenzy on race day to watch drivers battle it out to clinch a spot in the chase for the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup. The Duck Commander 500 is also one of the largest night races of the season, which gives fans the chance to experience the grit and glory of stock car racing under the lights of the track and the looming glow of “Big Hoss”—the world’s largest high-definition LED screen.

The 2016 Duck Commander 500 race events begin Saturday, April 2nd, culminating with the Duck Commander 500 on Saturday, April 9th at 6:30 p.m. (CST). This unique event at Texas Motor Speedway provides an extraordinary experience for drivers, spectators, and sponsors—it’s one for the books and the bucket list.
