  • Attendees will be notified via the stadium public address system of any lightning strikes within 10 miles and the event will be suspended immediately
  • All participants, spectators, vendors, and employees will be required to take shelter at any of the 3 dedicated facilities on the infield: North Infield Garage, Infield Restaurant, and Media Center.
  • There will be a 30 minute wait period to resume the event after the last reported lightning strike within a 10 mile radius.

There will be no refunds in the event of inclement weather, delays, or should the event need to be terminated for safety.
