  • Empty plastic water bottles and hydration packs are permitted on the race grounds.
  • Be sure to re-fill your plastic water bottle often at the hydration stations located throughout the park.

Wear Sunscreen

  • Safely soak up the sun. Apply and re-apply sunscreen throughout the day.
  • Attendees are permitted to bring sunscreen in non-aerosol containers in the size of 3.4 ounces or less.

Bring Essential Medications

  • Don’t forget to bring your medications to the festival to ensure a fun and safe experience. See NASCAR’s prescription medicine requirements below.
  • Prescription Medicine Requirements: Anyone needing prescription medicine must present the pharmacy-labeled container which states the prescription, dosage, and patient name to our medical staff at each entrance gate.
  • Patrons are only allowed a sufficient supply of the prescribed medication for that day.
