2. Normal admission must be paid for all others eg: Adults $12, Members with membership card $10.

3. All local drivers must be a member of Eastern States Speedway.

4. From the start of season 2014/2015 it was set that the one free pit crew must be a club member to be admitted free.

5. Pit crew can be nominated as club members through the normal process with annual membership fee paid $50.

6. If your one free pit crew person on the night is not a member then they will have to either pay normal admission or can pay a temporary day membership at a cost of $10 for the night.

7. So the 'free' entry for one pit crew will only apply if that person is a member - either fully paid for the season for $50 or temporary member for the night for $10.

8. Drivers are encouraged to sign your pit crew up as permanent members however the temporary membership for the night may be a cheaper alternative for less regular pit crew.
