Schedule

OPTIONAL FRIDAY TESTING HOSTED BY BARBER
Testing on Friday 8am-5pm with a one-hour break for lunch. Testing teams will be granted early access (Thursday night and before 9am on Friday). Cost and registration details TBA.  

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.

SPECIAL NOTE: CODE 35
Barber runs "Code 35" for some on-track resuces 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.
