We appreciate our fans at Riverside International Speedway and work hard to make sure you get the best possible experience when you visit our facility. Part of the experience is knowing what to expect. If you don’t find what you are looking for in the following information you are encouraged tocontactus. Our policies change from time to time; please review prior to attending each event.
This information is published for reference only and is subject to change without notice.
We have designated accessible parking spots next to the main gate and have a viewing platform at the top of the main grandstand. The walkways inside the gate are concrete and we have golf cart service from the main gate to the midway area for guests with limited mobility. Accessible washrooms are available.
Alcoholic beverages are prohibited from being carried into our events or consumed openly anywhere on our grounds. There is a licensed area serving beer and coolers/seltzers in the turn one-two end of the track. Guests must be 19 years of age or older to purchase and/or consume alcohol at RIS; identification may be requested. We refuse the right to refuse alcohol service. The RIS alcohol policy is governed by the Nova Scotia Liquor Control Act.
RIS is committed to providing an enjoyable experience for our guests. Please respect others. Improper conduct (i.e. profane or abusive language, emotional or physical harassment, or other abusive behaviour) will not be tolerated and violators are subject to ejection from the facility.
Small personal-size coolers (maximum 14″x14″x14″, preferably soft-sides) are permitted. No glass or alcohol is permitted to enter the facility. Coolers are subject to a security check upon entering the venue.
RIS is not responsible for items lost, stolen, or damaged while on our property. During an event lost and found items will be held at the main entry box office. If you lose an item during an event please provide a written description to the security guard at the bottom of the tower steps; they will get it to the announcer. For more information please call 902-863-2410.
The pit area is restricted to those 18 years of age and older. The only exception to the age policy may be for competitors under 18 years of age. In order for them to gain entry to the pit area, insurance forms must be submitted for review at least 72 hours in advance of arrival at the pit gate. Complete details and forms are here.
In the event of rain, the racing will be temporarily suspended. Every effort will be made to complete the program after the rain stops and the course is deemed safe for competition. If officials decide the bad weather will prevent the return of safe racing conditions in a reasonable amount of time, the remaining races will be postponed or canceled as follows: If no qualifying or heat races have run, your rain check will be honored at the scheduled rain date. If a portion of the qualifying events has been completed, 50% of the value of your attached rain check will be honored at the next scheduled event. There will be no refunds on your ticket if the main event is more than 50% complete. Please keep your ticket stub as the rain check is attached. You must present your ticket with a rain check stub attached for compensation in case a portion or full rainout happens. NO REFUNDS.
Re-entry is permitted if you leave the grandstand area during an event but you MUST get a re-entry stamp on your hand before you exit. You must present your stamp and ticket stub for re-entry. The pit area gate is closed once racing starts and not re-opened until after the last checkered flag.
We offer three types of grandstand seating. Our premium seats are located in the top two rows and are stadium-style seats (arms and backs). Premium seats are sold for the season only. Our bench seating is available as reserved or general admission.
All bags and coolers are subject to search upon entry; for ease of access, guests are encouraged to use transparent bags whenever possible. Security measures may be enhanced at the request of a promoter, local authorities, and at the discretion of RIS management. Guests that refuse to cooperate with security protocol will be refused entry, and not be eligible for a refund if they have already purchased their ticket.
Tickets for RIS events are offered in advance online; if tickets remain available on the event day they can be purchased at the track box office. On-sale dates, pricing, and more for each event can be found on our Schedule & Tickets page.
