SUITE PASSES/SUITE ACCESS
Suite passes will allow guests to access the suite area that is listed on the ticket only. Please issue suite passes to your guests prior to the event.
Your suite passes will also allow you to enter the pit area on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Please see the Pit Tour schedule below for more information and times. Please have your guests sign the waivers provided in your suite upon arrival for access to the pit area. There is no access to the garage area due to NASCAR regulations. Passes must be visible at all times while in the pit area. You may access the pit area through the pedestrian tunnel located between the Petty and Earnhardt Grandstands or by entering the infield through the service tunnel under Turn 3 of the track.
No alcoholic beverages may be carried out of suite level due to county laws.
SUITE WORKER PASSES
Worker passes are with each day’s suite tickets and are marked "worker". A worker pass will enable you to access your suite one hour prior to suite opening times. This pass may be used for any deliveries that need to be made to your suite, such as flowers, decorations, etc. Please refer to your contract for worker pass quantities. THESE PASSES DO NOT ALLOW GRANDSTAND ACCESS.
*PLEASE NOTE: If you have reserved the suite for Saturday only or Sunday only, the suite may be reserved by a different party on the day before or after you. Please do not bring anything into the suite (flags, banners, decorations, programs, etc.) until the day you have reserved. AMS is not responsible for any personal items brought into the suite during your occupation of the suite.
Parking passes will have the designated reserved parking area printed on them. All of the reserved lots are paved. Please affix your parking pass to the left-hand bottomside of your windshield in order to make the parking process easier for you and security.
