Pre-Race Pit Pass Policies
The only way for fans to access the infield is with the purchase of a pre-race pit pass. "Hot" and "Cold" passes are NASCAR-issued credentials to teams, officials, and media, and are not available to the general public.
Pre-Race Pit Pass Guidelines
Pre-race pit passes are good on the morning of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. Passes are not good for access on any other day and do not provide access to "Hot" garage areas.
Access to the infield is available when grandstand gates open at 8 a.m. Pre-race pit pass holders may access the infield either through the tunnel in Turn 2 or by using the crossover gates on the front stretch of the Main Grandstands. The track goes "Hot" one hour before the race and fans will need to leave the infield at that time.
Please be courteous of drivers and crew members. The drivers are not a guaranteed part of the pre-race pit pass and interaction with them should be considered a bonus. Understand that most are on tight schedules on race day and will not have time to give autographs or attention to every interested fan.
Attire for Garage and Pits
Shirts and pants; dresses; and/or skirts and blouses are required. Shoes are required. The following are permitted: shorts, short sleeve or sleeve-less shirts and blouses, and open-toed shoes.
Clothing must be appropriate for a major sporting event and family environment. Bathing suits are prohibited.
Minors are allowed in Pre-Race area ONLY with New Hampshire Motor Speedway Pre-Race Pit Pass. (Minors will not be signed in on any other track credential.)
NASCAR or the New Hampshire Motor Speedway may determine, in the best interest of the sport, that certain attire is unsuitable.
