Unfortunately, all general tickets have been sold out. VIP passes are still available for a mere $700 (plus fees).
How to get there:
Many people will be driving themselves and their friends to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which will have 40,000 parking spaces available.
Shuttles will run from several properties on the Las Vegas Strip and downtown. They are $90 plus fees.
In addition, Uber will be offering rides throughout the weekend. There will even be an Uber Rider Lounge for festival-goers to wait in comfort and a special Uber Lot within a short walk of the event gates.
Helicopters are also offering rides to the speedway in their helicopters. The 15-minute trip costs $800 round trip or $500 one way.
What to Wear:
Fun and crazy outfits are a must! However, there is no nudity permitted. Ladies stray away from the heels as you will not be able to feel your feet by the end of the night (morning). The temperature plans to be over 100 degrees daily so it is safe to assume that loose fitting and light clothing may be the best bet.
