Daily Schedule of Events – 2017


Arriving early Wednesday?

By police order (posted), please DO NOT park along the road by the track entrance.

Early staging is available in two locations.  VEHICLES IN THE STAGING AREAS WILL BE FIRST IN THE GATE, with a police escort to the track when gates open.  You park in line at the staging areas and arrive at the track in the same order.

If you’re coming from the south, use the staging area in Buchanan (opens at 8am).  Buchanan has a shuttle to downtown restaurants, grocery store, etc. all day Wednesday.
Here’s a MAP.  And directions:
A) US 12 to Red Bud Trail; turn north.  Go to 2nd traffic light and turn right.  Staging area is on the left in about 1/4 mile.
B) US 31 to Exit 7 (Walton Rd); turn east off ramp.  Staging area is about 2.5 miles on the right (after you cross the river).

If coming from the north, use the staging area in Berrien Springs (opens at 10am).  Berrien Springs is within walking distance to quite a few things, or you can make a stop before you park.
Here’s a MAP.  And directions:
I-94 to Exit 30 (Napier Ave.); turn east.  Go about 1.5 miles and get on US 31 South.  Take Exit 13 (Snow Rd.); turn left off ramp.  Just over a mile, turn left onto Shawnee Rd.  Fairgounds entrance is about 1.5 miles on the right.
