GRASS HILLSIDES

  • RESERVED LAWN SEATING (PRICING REMAINS SAME AS OLD GEN ADM) The grass hillsides at both the north and south ends of the speedway have been professionally surveyed and will be marked prior to event weekends for “Reserved Lawn Seating.” Using industry best practices, ODH orders, and CDC guidelines in response to the COVID-19 health crisis, Eldora officials have found this to be the optimal solution to accommodating the maximum number of race fans possible. North Lawn (NL-A, NL-B, NL-C, NL-D) is located in the grass area immediately below the correlating section of North Terrace. South Lawn (SL-A, SL-B, SL-C, SL-D) is located within the correlating sections of South Terrace. The top row(s) are in the uppermost grass area separating the three terrace walkways. The middle rows are in the grass area separating the middle walkway from the lower walkway. The lowest rows are in the festival lawn area and on the berm that rings Turns 1 & 2. Reservations for all Reserved Lawn do not include a physical seat. Patrons must provide their own lawn chair (max. width of 27″/no highbacks/no ‘Captain’s Chairs’/no tent chairs). ***THERE IS NO GENERAL ADMISSION SEATING AT THIS TIME***

POST-RACE TRAFFIC

 

Everyone arrives at different times throughout the week but most leave at the same time after the race. As such, parking lots and roadways can be congested. To help alleviate congestion, local authorities will be initiating a post-race traffic pattern that will get the lots emptied quicker.

Please look at the map below (click it for a printable version). Each lot will exit in a specific direction. If you find yourself going in the opposite direction that you need to be going, check out a local map of the area roads. Many roads and highways in this area are square mile blocks so getting yourself pointed in the right direction should be a breeze.
