Pokémon Go players can explore Darlington Raceway
Players of the popular Pokémon® Go game will have a one-time opportunity to visit the hallowed grounds of Darlington Raceway to play the game that has exploded in popularity since its July 6 launch.
This Thursday, July 28, Darlington Raceway will open its infield from 3:30 p.m. – 5 p.m. for play. A $10 admission fee will be charged. For the $10 admission, guests will receive a $5 ticket to the track’s Sept. 2 Practice Day. The other $5 will be donated to the track’s charitable arm, Darlington Shares.
Players must enter the track through the gate 39A tunnel entrance off of Highway 151 and park in the infield. All guests will have access to the infield, Gatorade Victory Lane (serves as a gym in the game) and Richard Petty and Jeff Gordon tire monuments (Poké Stops) located behind the main grandstands.
Due to preparations for the upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bojangles’ Southern 500 weekend, access to the track surface and pit road will not be permitted. All players 17 and under must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
