Sunday will be the busiest day, so drivers should consider taking the Park 'N Ride shuttle. Drivers can park their car at the Ak-Chin Pavilion on 83rd Avenue, just north of I-10, and then take the shuttle to the raceway from 7 a.m - 7 p.m.

For those driving to the event, be sure to check your parking pass to see which exit you should take off of I-10. That depends exit depends on your assigned parking lot.

On Sunday, the Good Sam 500 will conclude at approximately 3 p.m. with the heaviest outbound traffic expected from 3 to 6 p.m. The Avondale Boulevard exit will close periodically at this time to help with the flow of traffic.
