Course Map For This Event



 


Spectator Tickets and Will-Call

As part of an overall effort to expedite driver check-in, we have eliminated the use of "Will Call" lists, although purchasing your tickets via EventBrite below serves the same purpose. A few things will help us help you.
  •  Walking up to the Registration check-in desk WITH a printed copy OR your phone open to your BAR CODE is the quickest and easiest way to get you into the event. 
  • If you know the name of your MECHANIC or other attendee(s), include them on their tickets. Adding their email address will even send a copy directly to them.
  • If you don't know the name of your MECHANIC or other attendee(s), that's ok too, but you must send them a copy of their ticket, even a screenshot of the barcode via text will work.
  • We can check someone in manually, but verification could delay their entry thru the gate -- so please make every attempt to provide them with their ticket.

Parents, Guardians and Team Principles

If you need to check with in a driver for age or language reasons, you can still purchase a ticket for yourself below ahead of time or you can purchase it at Driver Registration. Purchasing them ahead of time below helps expedited check-in and keep the lines moving faster.
