A fan-favorite for many reasons, the MetalCloak Stampede offers incredible viewing opportunities for teams and spectators alike. Join us in the main bleachers for stadium-style seating or create your own viewing area along the fence line with easy-ups, camp chairs and coolers.

Spectator tickets are available at the gate for $20 for a single day or $30 for the weekend. Parking is $5. Dry camping at Prairie City is available at the gate as well for $25 per RV/camper/5th Wheel for the weekend.

The main camping pits are open to spectator access. Pit bands need only be purchased by teams and crew members.


For those looking to spend the day with us, or even better, the whole weekend, the MetalCloak Stampede will have a number of basic amenities available.

Port-o-lets are provided and placed around the site. Food and other vendors will be open for business. And our own merchandise trailer will be there selling all kinds of cool swag, no matter what the weather brings!

Prime viewing either from the grandstands or fence line is a major plus to the venue, so come stake your claim and stay awhile!

Attention Media:

If you are planning to cover the MetalCloak Stampede for a team or accredited media outlet, be sure to apply for credentials HERE.

You must be approved in order to be considered media/gain media access at the track. You must also have USAC insurance for the event. You can obtain that for a single event or get your annual insurance HERE. You will not be given media access on site until you have been approved and have USAC insurance. This goes for every team media personnel/ media outlet regardless of approval for previous events.

Due to licensing and insurance reasons, once again there will be no drones allowed outside of our company media team at Stampede or any other Ultra4 Racing event for 2019.
