More Minor information here.

Anyone not driving or working on the race cars should not be in the pit area.

Rental fees are non-refundable; if the weather is an issue the session will be rescheduled. If you need to reschedule for any reason other than the weather, you must do so at least 48 hours in advance of the start time. “No-Shows” will not be rescheduled.

The race car and driver must be registered to compete with a sanctioning body that races at RIS; the car must be approved for competition by the sanctioning body.

A maximum of four registered teams can share the rental with only one car on the track at a time. Cars participating in the rental cannot be swapped during the rental period, i.e. the four cars at the track must be the same cars that have been indicated on the Track Rental Request forms.

Rental Fees do not include fire/medic personnel or vehicles, wreckers, insurance, or any track staff or equipment. These services are available through the track at an additional fee.

If weather threatens your ability to use the track, in order to avoid a cancellation penalty, you should confirm the weather at the track before deciding not to attend.

A minimum of two people are required for each rental and you must have access to a cellular phone while on-site. Should you need emergency assistance call 911 first, then contact the on-site RIS worker to report the incident.

You are required to clean up any fluid spillages and are responsible for any facility damage that may happen during your rental. You must advise the attendant on-site when you are leaving.

These sessions are only for the purpose of practicing a race car in advance of one of our events. If you are considering a track rental for any other reason you must make that request with full disclosure of the purpose, the expected number of attendees, etc., in writing to – practice session rental rates do not apply for any other purpose.

Failure to comply with the Riverside International Speedway Team Track Rental Policy & Procedures outlined here and on the team track rental reservation form may result in eviction from the premises and forfeiture of future rental and/or racing privileges.
