Come out early and catch the Brickyard 400 in the Hall of Fame Lounge as a part of your Sunday Funday!. Racers and fans are welcome to join us to hang out prior to the race. Soda and Water is available in addition to Adult Beverages. We will have it open most of the afternoon – even before we start selling tickets or pit passes.
 
Speaking of pit passes, we are going to try something new for our grandstand guests that we hope can be a nightly thing. All grandstand guests can walk through the pits prior to the races without paying for a pit pass. After you purchase your grandstand ticket, come to the area North of the Grandstands between the two buildings near the Turn 4 area which is our pedestrian pit entrance. Simply sign a pit waiver and leave your Driver’s License with our gate attendant and you can hang out in the pits through hot laps. You must return to the grandstand prior to the start of racing when we play the National Anthem. When you leave the pits your license will be returned to you.
 
Adult admission is $15. Ages 11-18 $7, Kids 10 and under Free as always. Pits open at 4:00. Grandstands at 4:30 (although you can come inside earlier than that to watch the Brickyard), Driver Registration ends at 5:30. Hot laps 6:00. Late Model Qualifying 6:20. Racing at 6:30.

Races for Friday May 13th are Canceled

It’s a really tough decision, but we have decided as of 3:15 to cancel tonight’s races at Jacksonville Speedway. The weatherman is almost guaranteeing a line of thunderstorms passing through during race time tonight. We can see scenarios where it might not rain at all… but we can see a much more likely scenario where we won’t be able to complete tonight’s program. At this point with rain almost certain, to continue to push forward is really just taking the money of our fans and teams to hold for another day. That’s not the way we want to play this game.
 
We have teams on the road from Burlington, St. Louis and other areas. To have them to continue to drive here for an almost certain rainout isn’t fair.
 
We might be wrong… it might not rain. But everything considered, and with the threat of some severe weather… the right thing to do is cancel tonight’s races. That’s what we’ve done.
