Our legendary road course hosts the top series in motorsports including NASCAR Sprint Cup, NASCAR Nationwide, GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car and GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.

Media credentials are issued to working media that are on assignment only. All credentials are non-transferable, and any unauthorized use will subject the bearer to removal from the premises and confiscation of the credential. The credential building is located on the corner of Old Bronson Hill Road and County Route 16. All media must check in, with proper ID, at the credential building to acquire their credential and/or access sticker(s).
Credentials are good for admittance to WGI, while special access stickers will permit access to a number of areas at the track, including media center, photographers’ areas, and Gatorade Victory Lane. The WGI Media Center is a working environment for media, PR representatives, and drivers. Obtaining any autographs will not be tolerated and will result in credential revocation.
Photo credentials will be issued to personnel on assignment from recognized and accredited publications or news services only. Unattached, freelance photographers are not eligible to receive a media credential under any circumstances. Photo vests are required during each racing event and are available at the Media Center reception desk. Photo vests must be worn at all times. The Photographers’ Room is located on the first floor of the Media Center.
