All “Sun and Show” cars registered for the 2.5 mile oval Ride-Around are subject to a safety inspection. All drivers of race cars taking part in the Ride Around must wear all safety gear. Street cars, classics and hot rod drivers must wear seat belts.

The CRT Autograph Alley will be located at the Victory Circle Club.

All drivers are invited and encouraged to attend the Safety seminar presented by Philippe De Lespinay on Friday at 8:00 AM in the paddock area.

All 1/5-mile teams may outload at any time but must first report to a head CRT official for approval in order to not obstruct ongoing events. Due to the increased number of cars participating this year the pit area for the 1/5-mile has been expanded and overflow parking is being provided. Please cooperate with event officials to pit and park where directed.
