Public transportation is also an option to enjoy events on Saturday and Sunday. A free shuttle will be provided from the Emerson Park multi-modal facility in East St. Louis. Lyft, Uber, taxi, and public drop off/pick up is designated at the Gateway Golf Course located just north of the track. There will be signage in place to help guide drivers to this drop off/pick up site.

For motorists traveling near the Raceway, traffic congestion and roadway restrictions should be expected between 7 AM and 9 PM on Saturday and Sunday along I-55/70, IL 203, and Collinsville Road. SB IL 203 will be closed to through traffic between Bend Road and I-55/70. Motorists will be required to display a Parking Pass or Credential to travel between Bend and the Interstate on SB IL 203 during this period. Other restrictions will be implemented throughout each day that could impact roadways around the Raceway based upon traffic volume – including a lane reduction on WB I-55/70 at the conclusion of races each day.

Motorists can expect occasional delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Those motorists, who can, are encouraged to avoid the event area. When feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changing conditions and signs, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices, and be alert for police, workers, pedestrians, and equipment. Additional updates will be provided closer to race weekend.
