FULL PIT PASS PURCHASE AND VOUCHER REDEMPTION:

  • Full-priced pit pass purchases can be facilitated at any ticket window outside the track (main gate, turn four or turn three).
  • Previously purchased pit pass vouchers can be redeemed for pit pass wristbands at any ticket window outside the track (main gate, turn four or turn three).

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 – one on Friday and a larger scaled counterflow on Saturday that will get the lots emptied quicker.

Please look at the map below (click for full size PDF). 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.


Formats

 

Wednesday and Friday will follow standard World of Outlaws formats (they are full point paying shows). Thursday and Saturday will follow the traditional Eldora 6-heat major event formats, pictured below.
