Parking, Tailgating, & Gate Entry
Parking at Gateway Motorsports Park is a priority for management. We are continually working to create a flow that will increase the speed and ease for your entry to and exit from the park. We will provide updates to the parking procedures for each event as they become available.
For most events, fans will enter Gateway Motorsports Park from the Collinsville Road Entrance, on the Southwest corner of the facility. Exit I-70/55 onto IL-203 SOUTH and turn right at the first stop sign on to Collinsville Road. The entrance Gateway entrance will be the first road on the right.
Tailgating is allowed in your parking spot, but can not block the flow of PEDESTRIAN and VEHICLE TRAFFIC, FIRE LANES or GATES. Obstruction of any kind preventing the flow of traffic or creating a safety concern will not be permitted. BBQ Grills are restricted to Propane or Charcoal ONLY.
