ITEMS TO NOTE
New for 2021
All vehicles and spectators must pre-register before they arrive to the first venue they attend.
If you're picking up your credentials on day 1 at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio, you will go directly to the venue. At this time your ticket will be scanned and you will be directed to park, and then proceed to walk and follow the signs to pick up your credentials.
If you registered for a multi-day, or single day package and not starting in Norwalk, OH you will still need your barcoded e-ticket to enter the venue that you arrive at to pick up your credentials. After you enter there will be signs to direct you to credential/package pick up.
Registration and credential pickup starting on Monday, August 23rd at 9am-6pm. Tuesday August 24th-Friday, August 27th, will be available daily from 12pm to 6pm.
If you are planning to participate in the tour and ultimately qualify at the final stop as an official 'long-hauler' then it is mandatory that you check-in at credential pick up at the first stop and then personally mark your own credential at every stop. Credentials at the end of the tour that have been marked at every stop are eligible for the long-hauler plaques and certificates (a maximum of 1 per credential will be distributed at the end).
Long Hauler package (including credentials) will only be available for collection at the first stop - if a Long Hauler package is purchased and not collected at the first stop the package (including credentials) will default to the Multi-Day package. If Long Hauler package is not collected at the first stop there will be NO price adjustments made when changing to the Multi-Day package.
Vehicle registrations include a vehicle window sticker and credentials for two adults. Additional passengers are required to register for free spectator admission tickets. If they would like to have their own set of credentials they would need to purchase a package even if they are riding in the same vehicle. Once you pick up your credentials, you are set for the entire tour and do not have to stop at registration again. Everyone with a credential is eligible for daily giveaways at the main stage and at select sponsors booths (giveaways are not guaranteed for every booth and items are limited).
*2021 packages are subject to change by event organizers. We will inform you of any changes that need to be made based on the safety and welfare of our participants.*
Helmets are required for autocross and drag racing. Helmets must meet Snell rated SA or M 2010, 2015, or 2020. The helmets need to have a visible Snell sticker inside not SFI. Motorcycle or DOT helmets are not allowed under any circumstances.
Any car or truck owner who wants to join the tour is welcome! Any year, make or model vehicle accepted. Motorcycles are not permitted on the tour.
