  • DO NOT park in spaces that have been floured which are represented by black areas on the map below. These are reserved for our vendors and FD drivers.
  • Please be mindful of the driving lanes. Do not stop, park or block access to these areas. Fire and safety crews need to have clear lanes maintained.
  • FRIDAY May 24th PRE-PARTY PARKING - All vehicles and ticket types will enter in the main tunnel entrance gate. Gates will be open from 4pm-10:30pm. Guests who are not camping overnight will need to exit at closing. Vehicles that are not participating in the Car Show, Drift, Hot Laps or Drag/Roll Racing event on Saturday must also vacate the paddock at this time. Unauthorized vehicles will be towed.

  • SATURDAY May 25th PARKING - Media & General Admission guests will park in the West General Admission Lot and enter through the GA ticketing gate.

  • VIP, DRIFT, HOT LAPS, DRAGS/ROLLS, CAR SHOW, VENDORS - Upon entering Pikes Peak International Raceway from I-25, you will need to drive up toward the General Admission parking lot and make a u-turn to get in line for the main tunnel gate entrance. Please take note of the parking areas for your specific categories. All infield vehicles will be issued an Infield parking sticker that must be displayed on your windshield. Vehicles without this sticker will be towed.

  • TRAILERS will be permitted for drift only. We ask that drag, hot laps, and car show vehicles first park in the trailer parking area by general admission to offload your vehicle and then make your way to the tunnel gate entrance upon arrival. If you have a special circumstance please reach out to

  • CAR SHOW - We will begin parking car show vehicles starting at the North Side of the oval near the new burnout ring. You will NOT be able to choose your spaces.  Please follow the direction of the parking attendants. If you have a group that would like to park together, you will need to arrive in line together. Spaces will not be saved. We suggest meeting up with friends ahead of the event and convoying to the event together.  We discourage you from brining pop-up tents. These tend to take up too much space and with the wind at PPIR they can easily blow away and damage neighboring cars.

Other vehicles that may not be allowed on track are older cars with inadequate brake systems and/or safety features.  Drum brakes in the front of a vehicle are not permitted. Disc brakes in front and drum brakes in rear is OK. If you are uncertain whether your vehicle will qualify to participate, please consult the PPIR Track Manager.  PPIR may disallow any vehicle from racing for any reason.
  • Drivers must be at least 18 years of age with a valid government issued driver’s license. Drivers must be wearing a seatbelt. Helmets are not mandatory unless deemed necessary by PPIR. PPIR may require any driver to wear a helmet for any reason.

  • Passengers are allowed and must have the spectator or driver wrist band to ride along. Only one passenger may ride in a car at anytime. Passengers may only ride in the front seat. Passengers must keep their limbs inside the vehicle at all times. PPIR may disallow any passenger for riding in any vehicle for any reason. Passengers are allowed who are 18 years of age or older. Passengers must be wearing a seat belt.

  • Drag Racing Format: The drag strip runs South to North (northbound). A multiple lane grid of cones will be setup prior to the burnout area and starting line. Drivers will pull into line and wait for their turn to run down the strip, races are first come, first serve. Look for the PPIR staff controlling the grid for direction on the line to park in. You may grudge race a friend or another racer by pulling in line together nose-to-tail and simply inform the PPIR staff member assisting in lining up cars at the starting area that you are looking to race the other car with you.

    Once your turn to race has come up you will be directed by PPIR staff to pull up from the grid lanes into the burnout area. Burnouts are not required. No VHT or other similar liquids or materials may be used on the tires or the asphalt at any time. There is no water at the burnout area (just like the street). After completing the burnout, the driver will pull up to the staging/start line. Pull up enough to illuminate the pre-stage lights and then inch up slowly a bit more to illuminate the stage lights (both sets of yellow lights at the top of the Christmas Tree). Once both sets of lights are activated, within seconds the large yellow lights will drop from top to bottom and then the green light will turn on. Green means GO! Don’t be too quick to launch however because if your tire rolls away from the stage light beam before the green light turns on you will have lost the race, this is called red lighting. If you jump the start a red light will turn on signifying which lane is disqualified and has lost the race. After crossing the finish line that is marked with large cones drivers must slow down safely and the return speed on the track surface is 25mph, the speed limit in the paddock is 10mph. After a run drivers may park in the paddock or proceed back to the grid for another run.

    Roll Racing Format - Both drivers will proceed down track through the starting zone. The driver in the left lane is the “Pace Car”. The driver in the right lane will make every attempt to keep his/her bumper even with the bumper of the car in the left lane, with a target speed of 20-30 mph to start the race. The driver in the left lane will set the pace and make every attempt to keep their vehicle under 30 mph until they get the green light, which indicates the start of the race. This is when both drivers can go full throttle. 

    Shut Down, Speed Limits, and Safety: Once you pass the finish line, you must slow down quickly by applying the brake.PPIR Staff will be looking for brake lights immediately after crossing the finish line of the Drag Strip. Failing to slow down may result in ejection from the event. If any cars fails to slow down, the car will require a mandatory inspection by PPIR Event Management before making another run. All speed limits must be obeyed at all times, failure to do so may result in ejection from the event. The speed limit to return around the oval is 25mph.
