The Speedway requested that all trucks enter at Entrance Y which is the Bruton Smith Blvd entrance. This is Exit 49 off I-85.
Additional Traffic Hints:
I-85 and Exit 49 (Bruton Smith Boulevard) are usually the most congested on event days. If possible, try to avoid Exit 49 and Bruton Smith Boulevard. Good alternates are Hwy 29 from both the North and the South and Hwy 49 to Morehead Road.
