I went to the first one-with the heavy rain and wind-and last year's-hot, hot, hot. It is an awesome experience. General admission tickets are reasonable and allow you to walk all over the place and check out different viewing points as the weekend progresses. There are some grandstands for unreserved seating, but you're quite a way from the actual racing surface. On the other hand there are several jumbo tv screens that allow you to follow the action on the far side of the track.
Cycle World magazine has a ticket promotion for a general admission ticket for Fri. and Sat. and a reserved seat on Sunday. I did that last year and was in the Southwest Vista grandstand, and I could see plenty of action right in front of me.
Cycle parking is free on the backstretch of the oval-yes, the actual racing surface for the 500-and there's enough bikes parked there to spend an entire day just walking up and down the aisles looking at 'em all.
You won't regret it. Come early, stay late, bring water and sun screen and comfortable walking shoes-the place is huge. HTH
