Tip 2 - Splurge for Fanzone wristbands: When I bought the tickets for Mike, I just bought our seats, and he made some add-ons later, including in-field UNOH Fanzone wristbands. I was so impressed with how fan-friendly the whole day was. We signed the start/finish line, watched the cars get ready in the garage, and even walked up and down pit road.
We had fun chatting it up with Kyle Larson's pit crew - thanks for the souvenirs, guys!
Tip 7 - Rent a scanner and headset: Mike pre-purchased our rentals (each scanner comes with a noise-cancelling headset, and we rented one additional headset) and saved $20. There are rentals spots set up all over to present your voucher, and it was really cool to listen to the drivers and their spotters throughout the race.

Tip 10 - Stay until the end: Traffic might stink - it's a sporting event with 101,500 people, but please, please don't think about skipping the last few laps!! If you take advantage of tip 6, it won't be that difficult to leave. Drive East on International Speedway Boulevard to Route One, and you can easily connect back with 95.
