Weather Protection

Don’t let the weather keep you from the race. The Weather Protection Program offers fans the opportunity to exchange their unused Grandstand tickets from any postponed race at one of our properties for tickets to another race any time in the next year. No cost, no advance paperwork—the policy automatically comes with tickets purchased from any track.

What is the NASCAR Event Policy for Inclement Weather?

The Weather Protection Program applies to regular grandstand tickets for all NASCAR races (NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series) at any participating venue that is postponed and rescheduled to a different date due to inclement weather. Fan(s) may exchange regular grandstand tickets that were not used on the rescheduled date for a future NASCAR race (NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series) at a participating property. Unused regular grandstand tickets may be exchanged for a grandstand ticket of equal or lesser value based on event and seating location availability at the time of redemption.
