Good news for the upcoming Road America test next week on September 22, as race fans and media will be allowed into the paddock following a last-minute decision.

The track release is below:

A last minute decision by the participating teams means race fans and the media will now be allowed in the paddock on Tuesday, September 22 for the previously announced Verizon IndyCar Series test session.

The test session is being held in advance of the series’ return to the revered road course for the Road America Grand Prix, June 23-26, 2016. Admission to the test session is $20, with 50 percent of every ticket sold going to the Wilson Children’s Fund to benefit the family of the late Justin Wilson. Fans will also have the option to make additional contributions on site. Road America Season Pass holders will be admitted with a $10 donation to the Wilson Children’s Fund.

The test session will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. CT. Entrance to the test session for fans and media will be at the main gate located off of Highway 67. This will mark the only test session open to the public before race weekend in June.

Teams scheduled to participate in the test session include: AJ Foyt Racing, CFH Racing, Chip Ganassi Racing Teams, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing and Team Penske.

Anyone interested in donating to the Wilson Children’s Fund individually can give through the fund website at http://www.wilsonchildrensfund.com.
