  • Question about Chicago

    If I have friends who are getting tickets to the Chicago race on ebay, is there any way for them to get garage passes at the gate or is garage access part of the whole ticket package? I'm not familiar with these Nascar/IRL ticket package deals. If paddock access isn't included, can they purchase a paddock pass of some sort at the gate?

    Chicago does not sell pit or garage passes.

      I'm thinking about just showing up on race day and buying tickets. Is that easy to do at Chicago?

        I've been to both races, and there have been tix a plenty in the parking lot.

        That said, I don't know if they will crack down like Texas or not.

          Track season ticket holders were offered pit and garage passes for all 3 days. There is only a limited amount available. Contact Chicagoland ASAP for info.

            Tickets are available on the road into the Chicagoland, no problem.

            If you want garage passes, you'll need to get them through a team, supplier, etc.

              There have been people scalping tickets roadside the last two years - some may start almost as soon as you get off the Interstate

              There is also a bar about half mile south of the track where people were scalping tickets last year

              I think it might be best to look at a map of the seating of the facility, have an idea of areas you prefer because you could find some options unless you just want to take first available

                  Well it is only because you are our favorite wife of a crewman from AGR. Otherwise you'd be in trouble.

                    Awww shucks.

                    I'm still trying to get used to all this stuff. I hafta say, it was all sooooooo much easier in CART. What's up with these ISC tracks not selling paddock passes to the general public? That blows!

                        Once CART is dead, he will have no use for the IRL.

                          It's just this place and Kansas that don't have the slightest idea of how to take care of their fans. Us long time IRL'ers are in total agreement that this is a CRAPPY policy.

                          Places like TMS and PPIR understand that pit passes are nice extra revenue, AND they make the fans happy. The stupid Kansas FanWalk on the other hand, is a complete waste of good fencing.

                              When I called to ask the same thing at Michigan, I was told this was the case there also - just cold pit passes but no garage access. They told me that this policy is prevalent at ISC tracks. I think it's crap really. Fans get a lot out of seeing the cars up close and watching the crews work. ALL tracks should allow access to fans if they wish to purchase that type of access!
