SPECTATORS
All-access / all-weekend spectator pass is $30 (click here); spectator pass covers race days and pre-race test & inspection day. Spectators have full paddock access but DO NOT have hot-pit access. Spectators are not allowed to touch a race car—anyone wrenching, fueling, etc. needs to register on a team as a crew member. Barber-only rule: People 19 and under are not allowed in the paddock unless accompanied at gate check-in by a 20+ adult.

SPECIAL NOTE: CODE 35
Barber may use a "Code 35" procedure for some on-track rescues and tows. When the Code 35 flag is shown, all cars must slow to 35mph. Think full-course yellow with a speed limit. The flag and details will be covered in the drivers' meeting.
