EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW!
The second and final sprint boat race of 2023 at Ontario Speedway is all set to offer an exciting, fun-filled experience for race fans. Gates open on Friday, September 29 at noon for early arrival of campers. And for those coming on Saturday and Sunday, the gates open at 8:00 AM.
Some of the 50, Reserved Canopy spots, (we provide the 10x10 canopy), located up on our grassy berm, are still available, however, attendees are required to bring their own chairs. CLICK HERE TO RESERVE A CANOPY. Reserved Canopy spots cost $200, plus the cost of your tickets and the space can fit up to 8 chairs comfortably. And for the ULTIMATE FAN, we now offer an enhanced VIP Experience Ticket, including tickets, canopies, food, drinks, snacks and a pit pass, all for the amazing price of $150 per person, (there is a limit of 30 VIP passes available). CLICK HERE TO BUY VIP PASSES.
CLICK HERE TO BUY EVERYTHING ELSE, including tickets, canopies and camping passes.
1. Each race team receives five (5) free wristbands which can be used to get in your driver, navigator, and three pit crew members. Additional wristbands above five must be paid for.
2. Each race team receives two (2) free camping passes which they can use to camp in the pits (not in the spectator campground). Additional camping passes must be paid for.
3. Each race team may sell their team merchandise for FREE in the pits (only), or can sell outside the pits in the vendor area for a heavily discounted fee, see link below.
Racers can also enter late at Ontario Speedway, on Friday, September 29th. Also, if you are arriving late Friday night, or early Saturday morning, please contact Melody Pozgay for a late registration appointment.
Based on fan input, and striving to satisfy all of our spectators, we have decided to also allow a limited amount of canopies in a viewing section on the east side of the track, dubbed Canopy Chaos. This is a first come, first served area, and you will not have as good of a view of the races as you would from the Reserved Canopy Area, but it is free.
Just like our infamous Big Nasty Hillclimb (where some years we have sold close to 1,000 camping passes), we are also offering onsite camping at Ontario Speedway. The camping area is about 200 yards from the racetrack and is covered with grass and mowed, green ground cover. All parking is free and handicap and senior citizen camping is also now available, see map for location of handicapped camping area, and let us know if you are planning on camping there, near the bleachers.
Food and beverage vendors will be onsite, and the Bargarita's Beer Garden will be located on the berm. NO outside food & drink in the fenced-in spectator area, although you may have these items in the camping and parking areas, of course. You CAN consume your own food and beverages at the south end of the track, OUTSIDE of the fenced area.
Kids under the age of 5 can enjoy the event for free, kids 6-12 cost $10 for the entire weekend. Leashed dogs are allowed in the campground, but they are not permitted in the spectator area. Onsite Helicopter rides will also be happening onsite all day Saturday and Sunday, just like we always did at the Big Nasty!
Lastly, we want to ensure the safety of all our attendees and the environment. Therefore, absolutely no campfires are allowed on the ground. Only gas-fired outdoor fire pits are permitted.
We look forward to seeing you at the event!

Ontario Speedway gives huge thanks to our Western States Cat Rental Store in Fruitland, Idaho. They made our huge racetrack expansion project possible by helping us with the right equipment. The Fruitland Cat Team was helpful and positive, and they were just a phone call away when we needed their advice and very responsive when we needed their help. We can’t recommend the Fruitland Cat Rental Store enough. A BIG thank you from all of us at Ontario Speedway. See you at the races!
