Those with state DMV issued tags will be allowed one driver band and the driver must be over 18 years of age. The band and handicapped vehicle id tag must remain on at all times. No pit vehicles for any reason are allowed on Saturday due to the dense nature of the crowd.

Alcohol is limited to a six pack a day per person 21 and over. No glass bottles are allowed so watch out on that wine bottle!
