2017 Anthem Annual February

Texas Motor Speedway enters its 21st season in 2017. Over the past 20 years, the 1.5-mile track in north Fort Worth has hosted some of the most memorable moments in NASCAR history. Each year, Texas Motor Speedway hosts two races in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Since 2005, Texas Motor Speedway has hosted the eighth race in the Chase for the NASCAR Cup — the AAA Texas 500. History has shown Texas Motor Speedway’s AAA Texas 500 to be the most pivotal race in the 10-race Chase, providing drama both on and off the track. In the Lone Star State, the saying goes, “Everything is bigger in Texas,” and Texas Motor Speedway is no exception. The facility boasts the world’s largest TV, appropriately named “Big Hoss.” The TEXAS Motor Speedway video board perched high above the backstretch stands 12 stories high and at a size of more than a half acre. Along with “Big Hoss,” Texas Motor Speedway boasts large crowds. The track’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races, held annually in April and November, are routinely the largest sporting events in the state of Texas and are among the largest singleday events in the United States.
