Open track racing

Does anybody know if Kentucky Speedway or Indianapolis Speedway offer open track racing (I think that's what it's called)?? I want to take my my 350 to a track and open it up to see it's full potential. I live in Southern Ohio so these are really the only tracks that are close to me that I know about.

I am open to idea's or suggestions on other locations in the same area where I could do the same thing or something similar. Being that I don't know my skill I would prefer it to be a situation where I just do a laps without racing others.

I lived in Indianapolis for 30 years and have attended close to 20 races. There is not open lapping on the track. The only day you could drive your own car on the track was opening day in early May. But that was just a bumper to bumper snail's pace parade drive. I dreamed many times of driving on that track. I have ridden my bicycle on it many times. It's smooth as glass.
