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.
