    Pros

    Small company but has big responsibilities. All employees work well together to accomplish time sensitive goals. Sporting event experience working in Retail.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the employees aware of any changes to the company and upcoming advancement opportunities. That's how I was able to advance.

    Pros

    It is impressive to tell people you work / worked for Speedway Motorsports. You will have a chance to meet a lot of interesting people. The environment is fast paced and exciting.

    Cons

    Even though this is a pubically traded company it is still operated as if it is a sole ownership with little interest in stock holders. The CEO / founder is aging (mid 80's) and this is beginning to show in some of his decisions. The management team Bruton has built is very weak and will have difficulty holding the business together after he is gone. Included is his son, Marcus, who misrepresented that he had degree from UNC Chapel Hill.

    Advice to Management

    The quality of management has dropped since the departure of COO H.A. Wheeler. The employees are not treated as well and the vision that brought the company to its height has become blurry.
