Transportation Update

Travel options are much improved from last year, to enhance the guest experience. Shuttles and taxis will have a newly dedicated route to/from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway that is separate from auto traffic – and that will speed up shuttle/taxi travel. Auto access routes have been modified to improve access, and additional parking staff have been added to increase the speed of access and parking.
