With the green flag dropping on the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ at 1 p.m., “Park ‘N Ride” services will be available for 12 hours – from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. – Sunday, giving all NASCAR fans an alternate transportation option before and after the race. The first shuttle will depart at 7:30 a.m. and the raceway opens to the public at 8 a.m.
Guests with PIR-issued parking passes can park and ride at no charge. Shuttle buses will escort guests to PIR via preferential traffic routes, offering guests an easy and earlier arrival to the facility.
