The purpose of this site is to promote and enhance the fan experience at the INDYCAR Series venues by having a one stop site to access information to the tracks, find hotels, restaurants, tickets and credentials and airport preference. We are going to share our 'INDYCAR road warrior' merit badges and experiences! The site will also provide a blog in which to share ideas, thoughts and tips on the events, travel to/from and just general bench racing by serious ICS fans.

Shuttles are available from remote lots, but recommend driving downtown and paying $10-$20 per day to park. Plenty of parking lots and parking garages. Tickets are nonrefundable and non-exhangeable. No coolers or food. No smoking in grandstands, bridges or buildings. No folding chairs or laptops. Downtown hotels are scarce and pricey. Plenty of rooms on Gulf of Mexico (15 min. drive to track), but they are pricey. Budget minded stay in Tampa and drive 25 minutes to the track.

The 1.8-mile, 14-turn circuit incorporates streets of downtown St. Petersburg and a section of runway of Albert Whitted Airport. After the long frontstrecth, there's a tight right-hander into Turn 1 and then a quick left- hand turn. Plenty of drivers have gotten into trouble in these two turns over the years. There are two other long straights with braking zones that afford opportunities to overtake.
