Hot vs Cold Pit Pass
Hot and Cold passes come with the exact same access to the track, but the big difference is the time when you can be at the track, which is a big deal. Cold passes make you leave the pit & garage area when the cars are active or "HOT". Usually, this is a half hour before and after practices and qualifying. Along with one hour before the race. These times are designated by NASCAR and vary slightly from track to track. Hot passes give you unlimited access for all practices, qualifying, and the race. With hot passes you are going to have more access to the drivers for pictures and autographs while seeing how fast the cars are up close. Also, with hot passes you can watch the race from ground level on pit road and celebrate in Victory lane if your team wins.
