All non-licensed motorized vehicles (any vehicle that doesn’t have current state roadworthy licensing) will require an authorization sticker to operate on BIR grounds. An authorization sticker is available for sale at the Front Gate during events. Pricing is as follows:
$15 – 2013 Season Ticket (excluding NHRA Nationals)
$60 – 2013 NHRA Nationals only
To purchase a non-licensed vehicle ticket, an adult (over 18 years old) with a valid drivers license must sign a release waiver and take full responsibility for that vehicle and any and all injuries/damages it causes. The ticket is then redeemed for an individually numbered sticker to be placed on the front of the vehicle. Tickets can be redeemed for stickers by stopping by the Security station or by contacting any of our security guards and presenting the vehicle for inspection. (See vehicle guidelines below)
It is not the responsibility of BIR for pit vehicle safety, it is the person who signs the release that takes full ownership of that vehicle to see that it is safely operated! The following is a list of guidelines with regards to vehicles.
