There are only two roads that access the facility and they are both two-lane "country" roads. I'm betting that race day will be a clusterf*ck of epic proportions.

Of course, there are six helicopter pads.
Traffic is going to be insane. They are shutting down the roads in and out of the track. No one will be able to even get near the track without a pass. Can't even have a taxi or limo drop you off. All access will be done from the park/ride parking lots, unless you have a pass. They don't have enough time to address parking and widening the roads going into the facilities. Next year should be a lot better.

There won't be any unless you want to fork out $15k for one of the 78 VIP RV spots.
