Any person entering onto this property without the permission of management will be considered a trespasser and will be subject to the penalties for trespassing, as prescribed by Indiana law. A pit license gives the participant the authority and right to be on the property for racing activities.

its fans, and/or its employees.
D. Movieland Speedpark management has the ultimate authority for the interpretation and enforcement of these rules.
