Please: No phone calls.
Verification: We also may ask for a credential request letter from the owner or editor of your outlet.
Reserved seating in the infield media center is limited and will be issued by priority and available space. Reserved seats are not guaranteed unless specified by Director of Public Relations.
Working media credentials will not be issued to employees in marketing, promotions, sales, advertising, public relations, etc.
Credentials and parking passes for NASCAR and INDYCAR events may be picked up at the Credentials Building across the street from the speedway. Days and hours of operation will be posted.
Gateway Motorsports Park cannot grant media credentials for our annual NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event. To obtain credentials for NHRA national events you must contact Scott Smith at NHRA’s Communications Department — [email protected].
IMPORTANT: If you request media credentials and do not pick them up, you may be refused media access in the future. If you requested credentials and are unable to come to the event for any reason, please contact John Bisci ([email protected]). This will release your seat in the media center to another media member and keep you in good standing with the track.
Limits may be imposed on media outlets requesting more than one credential.
Since space is limited in our media center, we may not be able to assign reserved seats for team public relations personnel, especially at our INDYCAR event.
We do not grant credentials to freelance photographers (or hobbyists) who are not on assignment from a recognized media outlet.
Photo vest requests for NTT IndyCar Series events at GMP are forwarded to INDYCAR for their evaluation and approval. INDYCAR’s decision is final.
You must attend at least one of the scheduled and posted photo meetings in order to obtain a photo vest.
Gateway Motorsports Park cannot grant photo credentials for our annual NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event. To obtain credentials for NHRA national events you must contact Scott Smith at NHRA’s Communications Department — [email protected].
