Well, you can expect it to be LOUD! It's a short track, thus forming a tight "bowl" effect with the seating.
MUCH MUCH louder than, say, Texas Motor Speedway. And because it's a short track, there are no bad seats, IMO. Everything is up close and personal.
Unless you are camping close to the track, wear comfortable shoes! You're in for quite a walk. There are people that bring in their quads and make money running taxi services. They charge a LOT though....something like $15.00 per person. After the race their prices go down for trips back to your vehicle. LOL, they've made a ton already are willing to negotiate.
As I said on another NASCAR thread, we were very impressed with how the local LEOs handle the traffic after the race. It's 4 lanes going in, two way. After the race they turn all four lanes in to one way...out. After we got back to our truck, we were on the interstate in about 30 minutes.
Oh, and you ARE allowed to bring in adult beverages. We didn't, but were surprised that the vendors didn't have a restriction on BYOBing into the stands. Heck, you are allowed to bring in your own sodas. Just pack up the small cooler and haul it in.
