In order to make everyone’s experience at the race track a pleasant one we ask our fans to follow the following guidelines.

  • When entering the grandstands, please have your ticket available and ready to show the usher.
  • Fans may not stand in aisles, on stairways, landings, handicap ramps & especially in front of wheelchairs.
  • People taking pictures can do so but must immediately return to their seat so as to not block the vision of others.
  • Coolers in the stands are limited to 14” and must be placed under the seats.  Again, glass bottles are not permitted within the park.
  • Umbrellas/obstructions - Items that would obstruct other guests view are prohibited.
  • Seat cushions, bleacher seats – are permitted, but cannot exceed 18”.
  • Due to recent fire and safety concerns, lawn chairs and/or seating alternative to bleachers is no longer permitted in the grandstands or anywhere in the seating bowl.
  • Animals are not permitted in the grandstands.  For their safety and others, animals must remain either in your pit area or campsite. 
  • Please refer to the "Guest Code of Conduct"


Seating Map

Provided at the request of our guests, this map shows both sides of our grandstands in the 'seating bowl'. Please note:

  • Where you see the wheelchair icons, those are spaces saved for people needing to sit in wheelchairs throughout the show. There are NO SEATS in that row. However, friends/relatives can sit in our 'companion' seating, which is the first row behind the wheelchair seating. In order to purchase a seat in the first row, one must purchase a wheelchair seat first.
  • No Alcohol areas - located in the last Garlits Grandstand (2C) on the Budweiser side of the racetrack. Or Section (3D) on the Summit side. If phoning our office to purchase tickets, specify the side of the racetrack you'd like to sit on as well as the no alcohol section, if that is where you'd like to sit.
  • The following sections have been converted from reserved seating to general admission seating for Night Under Fire:
    Summit Side:  Thomas Section 4A, 4B, 4C
  • Due to recent fire and safety concerns, lawn chairs and/or seating alternative to bleachers is no longer permitted in the grandstands or anywhere in the seating bowl.
  • The Budweiser grandstands face west. This means as the sun sets, if you are sitting on the Budweiser side, the sun might be in your face. (That is, we HOPE it is... it means the weather must be nice!) If you think having the sun in your face would bother you, be certain you select seats on the Summit side.
  • Our pit parking area for show cars, changes from race to race depending on the overall space required etc. If you wish to sit on the side closest to the 'show cars' i.e. jet cars, funny cars etc., verify with our office prior to purchasing your tickets, which side will 'host' the professional category cars.
    If you have a question about something we have not covered here, please bring it to our attention. Perhaps by addressing your topic in this section, we will provide an answer regarding the same issue for another guest.
