DART light rail now travels to Fair Park!
Be sure to visit the DART website for schedules and station maps. Keep in mind trains do not run very often on Sunday morning. At this point trains will only arrive at Fair Park 3-4 times before race start. However if you plan ahead you can avoid car traffic and let DART do the driving. We will have bag check for everyone.
There are no hotels within walking distance to Fair Park. However, downtown Dallas is just a few minutes. You can choose any in that area. We do not have a host hotel nor any Big D room rates.
All gates at Fair Park will be open! Use all gates.
