If you’re headed to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Auto Club 400 in Fontana on March 17, avoid the traffic and enjoy a stress-free ride on a special Metrolink train.
With the purchase of Auto Club 400 race tickets, fans also have the opportunity to purchase a Metrolink $10 Weekend Day Pass to skip traffic for a convenient and affordable option to the speedway.
Metrolink’s Speedway trains stop at special platforms just off the back straight-away at the race track. From there, passengers will board a free tram that takes them to the entrance gates. Trains depart Auto Club Speedway one hour after the end of the race, or checkered flag.
Metrolink’s regular San Bernardino Line weekend service will not stop at the Speedway platform. Only race fans riding the special train service can reach the Auto Club Speedway.
Metrolink riders can bring food and non-alcoholic beverages on board the train. Items are not permitted to be stored at the Speedway train station; however, fans may utilize lightweight backpacks and soft side bags/coolers, no larger than 6x6x12 inches, that may contain race weekend essentials. For a complete list of approved carry-in items, please visit http://www.autoclubspeedway.com.
Advance purchase of the train pass will be available up until five days before the race, Tuesday, March 12 and shipped out prior to the event.
To purchase race and train tickets or for information on the Auto Club Speedway train schedule, call Auto Club Speedway at (800) 944-RACE (7223), log on to www.autoclubspeedway.com/metrolink or visit the Auto Club Speedway Ticket Office.
People who purchase race tickets after Tuesday, March 12 can still ride the train by securing a Metrolink $10 Weekend Day Pass at a station ticket machine or through Metrolink’s mobile app on Sunday, March 17.
