For more info about accessibility, go to a Guest Information Booth, ask a staff member, or call 800.RACEWAY. The Raceway grounds are extensive, so guests with physical limitations may want to bring wheelchairs or walkers.

There are disabled-accessible parking areas for cars and light trucks. (Oversized vehicles will be sent elsewhere.) To park here, you must have a valid state-issued sticker, license plate, or placard, and the person for whom it was issued must be in the vehicle. The only guaranteed reserved wheelchair parking is right behind the Main Grandstands, free with purchase of accessible wheelchair seating in the Grandstands. Spaces are first-come, first-served. If you don't have a reserved disabled parking pass but need disabled parking, tell the parking attendants, and you'll be sent to the disabled access section of the disabled parking lot. Contact track security or staff if you want to request a golf cart to take you and one companion from disabled parking to the Grandstands. You may want to arrive early because parking does fill up fast.

Guests from the family RV/camping and Infield areas can take a free shuttle bus to the Fan Fair on Fridays and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. Eastern time on.
