Reserved and Unreserved Pit Spaces
An unreserved pit space is included at no charge with your race entry.  However, the location of unreserved spaces is determined on a first arrive, first serve basis with no ability to choose a location or pit neighbor.  As a result, you could arrive at “dark-30″ on Friday morning and still be a football field from the pre-grid or worse yet, you can’t get to the event until Saturday.  Therefore, we have provided the ability to pre-reserve a pit space(s).  In this manner, you choose the space you want now and that space will be available whenever you arrive.  There is labor required to administrate pit space reservations, so a cost is involved.  However, you will hopefully view the nominal $30/space charge as well worth it.
 
Reservation Instructions
Team Managers with block requests or those that need an irregular sized pit space, should call (951) 491-0808.
Reserve your Pit Space now in the Online Store.

Spectator Tickets
1 and 2 day spectator passes are available through the online store and at the track throughout each event. These passes include pit access, thus enriching the spectator experience through up close contact with the drivers and crew. Prices are $15 for a 1-day pass and $20 for a 2-day pass. Kids 5 and under are FREE, but everyone must sign an insurance waiver.
