To all our fans:
We appreciate your patience at the gates today for the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks.
Due to increased inspection of bags, the lines to enter the facility were longer than normal today.
We pride ourselves on creating a welcoming fan experience, and a key component to that is the policy we have that allows fans to bring in bags and coolers with their own food and drink. As a result, we must thoroughly examine the content of bags, and unfortunately that took longer than anticipated.
There is no sport that is more American than NASCAR, and we have measures in place to ensure that our fans are able to enjoy the events in the safest manner possible.
As always, we encourage fans attending our future events to make plans to arrive early to the gates.
Please accept our apologies, again, for the inconvenience you may have experienced today.
Exec. Vice President & COO
