Boles held a similar briefing earlier this week with useful information for fans, but made a few additions Thursday.

Gate 4 at the track will be closed to all pedestrian traffic beginning Friday and going through race day. Attendees will need to use Gate 3 and walk through the tunnels to get to various parts of the track.

Gate 12 will also be available as an alternate gate for those who typically use Gate 4. No vehicles should pass Gate 4 unless they are directly necessary for the race. Golf carts will be allowed.

Boles also commented on the fact that Vice President Mike Pence will be at the race, and said he'll just be there as a fan and won't have an official, planned role in the 500 festivities.
