I highly recommend taking the trip to Salt Lick if you are a BBQ fan. It was rated the Best BBQ.
Austin traffic can definitely be rough. But it's worth saying that the city isn't a stranger to large influxes of people for events (UT football, ACL, SXSW, etc.). I don't know that traffic within the city is going to be as much of an issue as traffic getting down to COTA. There are only two roads that access the facility and they are both two-lane "country" roads. I'm betting that race day will be a clusterf*ck of epic proportions.
Of course, there are
six helicopter pads.
