Restricted Pit Areas & Passes Important Information Regarding Pit Access PIT PASS INFORMATION Prior to the tunnel under the backstretch, the only pit access available was to walk across the track. Earl Baltes had so many fans and competitors tell him they loved the new tunnel, it became known simply as ‘The Love Tunnel’. Pit Passes: Pit passes, which allow access to the restricted pit area, are available at most Eldora racing events. A pit pass also allows for admission into the grandstand area and General Admission seating areas. Purchase: Pit passes can be purchased from the ticket offices located at Gates 2, 3 and 4. Upgrades: Previously purchased event tickets can be upgraded to a pit pass. The upgrade price is usually the difference between the pit pass price and General Admission ticket price, though it can vary from event to event. At smaller events, upgrades can be performed at any ticket window at Gates 2, 3 and 4. At larger events (#LetsRaceTwo, DLM Dream, Eldora Million, Kings Royal, World 100, 4-Crown Nationals, DTWC) upgrades are performed at the Upgrade Station located near Gate 3. Access: The pit area can be accessed via the ‘Love Tunnel’ which runs under the backstretch. This pedestrian-only tunnel can be reached via Gates 4, 6, or 7. During Sprint Car events, the tunnel is closed during the engine heat process (typically a 10-15 min period prior to hot laps). Age Requirement: Minimum Age – Only persons 14 years of age or older will be admitted to pit area. Minors 14, 15, 16 or 17 years of age must submit a Parental Consent, Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk, and Indemnity Agreement signed by a parent (or legal guardian). No exceptions. If the waiver is not signed in the presence of an Eldora Speedway official, it must be notarized.

Minor waivers will not be accepted at any other ticket office or ticket window on property. Use the map below to view the various purchase areas and entrance locations to the restricted pit areas.
