NORTH WILKESBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — We may see madness on the track, but North Wilkesboro Speedway plans to keep drivers in order when it comes to parking for All-Star Weekend.
The track has four on-site and two off-site parking lots available. On-site parking at North Wilkesboro Speedway is limited and is expected to sell out quickly.
You have to pay for parking in advance, and parking is only available for ticket holders. Parking fees are per vehicle, so you may be able to cut down on costs by carpooling. Parking passes will be mailed to those who purchase them, and there is a limit of two parking passes per account. There will be no free parking lots, and all parking will be general admission.
Free trams or shuttles to and from the speedway will be provided for the off-site lots.
ADA Parking for fans with state-issued ADA placards or license plates will be available in all off-site parking lots. On-site parking Lot 1A is designated for ADA parking only.
Tailgating will be allowed in all parking lots except for the Off-Site Blue Lot. Tailgating space is limited to the space directly behind your vehicle and may not block traffic.
Heavy traffic congestion is also expected so it is recommended to follow the driving directions to your parking lot.
Motorcyclists should utilize the Blue Lot.
To purchase parking passes or for more information, visit the North Wilkesboro Speedway website.
