One of the coolest things about the IMSA event is that fans are invited to walk pit lane and get up close to their favourite teams, drivers, and cars just minutes before the race. The grid walk will open for the Michelin Pilot Challenge race on Saturday, and of course for the WeatherTech race on Sunday. Access to the open grid walk will be in the paddock at the base of the Michelin Bridge.

Shuttles run continuously throughout the day and usually end around the same time as the final on-track session of the day. There will also be a mobile vehicle service, courtesy of Motomaster, providing fans with non-emergency support such as battery boosts and tire inflation.
