Get behind a racer on the Tomorrowland Speedway and cruise with real gas-powered cars. The track will take you 4/10 of a mile with turns and banks and as you cross over the finish line in real Nascar style the checkered flag is waved.
Since Indianapolis Motor Speedway used to be the sponsor you will see Indianapolis 500-style race cars, Indy racing photos, and panels of the three annual Indianapolis Motor Speedway races (The Indianapolis 500, The Brickyard 400, and the United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis).
Don’t worry while driving you can’t go too fast. With the highest speed of 7.4mph you will be one of 146 race cars on the track so caution since inexperienced drivers may stop short in front of you or hit you from behind.
- From 1994 to 2009 the announcer would give a traffic report when the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover went over the track. The report would say, “Hi there Tomorrowland travelers. This is Mr. Johnson in Skyview Hovercraft One, bringing you the latest Tomorrowland traffic report. As usual, everything is perfect on Tomorrowland’s Super Highways.”
- The Original name was Grand Prix Raceway. It was changed to Tomorrowland Indy Speedway but in 2009 they dropped Indy once the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was no longer the sponsor.
- Height Restrictions: 54 inches tall can drive their own car, 32 inches tall can drive as long as they are accompanied by someone who is 54 inches tall.
