Grandstand ticketing will be limited to 1,500 with a standard admission price for all events of $25 per person, with specified seating locations to ensure social distancing and presale offering contactless purchasing.

With the limited schedule of races, and limited seating for each event, fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets as soon as possible.

A special addition to the race card for that date will be racing for four divisions of ARCA stock cars featuring local drivers—the ARCA Sportsman, ARCA Street Stock, ARCA Figure-8 and ARCA Factory Stock classes.
