It sounds like the bulk of the North 40 will still be free parking (with paid admission to the day's event).
It was really great to see the Indy Cars back a Pocono this past Weds. We were there and I have to say there was a decent amount of fan's in the stands, as well as in the paddock area. I was lucky enough to spend time with Mario, Marco, Dario, and Will Power. While walking in the garage area I ran into Rick Mears and had a very nice conversation with him. He was always a favorite and he is a true gentleman. I put together a little video from the day's events. Please excuse the glitch about 3 minutes

So should we expect Pippa Mann to get a ride & most likely Jay Howard as well?
