GLASS CONTAINERS:


*Glass bottles and containers are strictly prohibited from being brought into the grounds.

PARKING:
*Ample parking is available at a variety of Speedway lots outside the track, as there is no parking inside the track during this event.

*Parking is available in the Speedway's 'North 40' lot just north of the track off 30th Street. On practice and qualifying days, each person in the vehicle must pay gate admission to park in the lot.
*Adequate parking is also available in the Speedway's Lot 1, which is immediately adjacent to the northwest corner of the Speedway at 25th Street and Georgetown Road.

PHOTOGRAPHY:


*Photography and personal video equipment (camcorders) is permitted, but all bags are subject to search.

LOW-POWER PUBLIC ADDRESS BROADCAST:


*The Indianapolis Motor Speedway public address system will be broadcast via the radio, on frequency 100.1 FM, so fans can hear P.A. information during on-track activity.

Any hand-held radio receiver or headset should pick up the broadcast, which will be available all three days of the event, Sept. 27-29.

TRANSIT SERVICES:


*Fans are encouraged to travel to and from the Speedway on the IndyGo public transit services, which are available all three days of the event.
