Watching The Race

  • Your BMW CCA Hospitality Center ticket allows you to watch the Sunday races from anywhere that General Admission tickets are permitted, almost everywhere!  Below, we have highlighted some great spots to watch the track action relative to the car corral and hospitality center.  There will also be an IMS CCTV in Pavilion Bay 1 so that no action is missed while enjoying the hospitality center.



IMS Carry-In Policy

  • Indianapolis Motor Speedway's Gate Policy applies to the 2023 BMW CCA Hospitality Center and Car Corral for IMSA Battle on the Bricks.  Please find the IMS gate policy here:  Attendees are encouraged to pack a regulation-size cooler with their favorite beverages for taking with them around the track while watching the race.  If you plan to watch the race from the viewing mounds, having a camp chair and/or a blanket is also highly suggested.
  • No outside food or beverages shall be brought into the BMW CCA Hospitality Center in Pagoda Plaza.  This includes coolers, carry-in food, and beverages (i.e., water, soft drinks, beer, and wine) that are otherwise permitted in and around IMS facilities and viewing areas.  All food and beverages in IMS Premium Spaces and Facilities must be obtained through IMS catering services, which the BMW CCA hosting chapters have coordinated for our attending members.
  • Since no alcohol will be served in the BMW CCA Hospitality Center, alcohol may be purchased from IMS vendors around Pagoda Plaza and brought back into the BMW CCA Hospitality Center.  Again, no personal beverages carried in by CCA attendees may be brought into the BMW CCA suite, but beverages purchased from any IMS vendor may be brought in.
  • *There will also be a refreshment station and pop-up tent for members to grab water and other beverages when coming to and from the car corral.  We suggest keeping your cooler and chairs at the car corral until you are ready to go set up for watching the race.


We appreciate everyone's commitment to be awesome race fans and gracious guests to keep BMW CCA in good standing with IMS and its facility partners so that we may continue to host events like these in the coming years.  We hope this is the first year of many back at the Brickyard!

Any questions or requests?  Please contact Mark Arnold (Buckeye Chapter) and/or Scot Couturier (Hoosier Chapter).
