Once the race begins no vehicles will be allowed to enter or leave this parking lot. Parking is also available at the overflow lot marked on the map below. This parking lot is first come first served. Please note that we encourage you to not leave any valuables in your vehicles. While we have not had any break ins reported during our events, there have been other events in the past where vehicles were broken into during an event.
