2021 Media Credentials
Thank you for your interest in attending West Virginia Motor Speedway as an official Media Representative.
The deadline to apply for media credentials is at least seven business days prior to the event. Special exceptions will be made for those receiving assignments after the deadline on a case by case basis. With a limited number of media representatives made available, priority should be made.
Who should apply (and who does not need to)
If you are a member of the media representing an outlet with the intent to cover our events/races, thank you for your interest in covering our event. As there are dozens of applications each year, there will be limited space for those working on personal blogs, photo portfolio websites and personal sales.
Due to security & admittance reasons, individuals interested in media credentials who are already members of a race crew will not be given media credentials. Exceptions may exist, please contact us at email@example.com.
If you are volunteering for the event at West Virginia Motor Speedway you do not need to apply for media credentials. (Purchasing a pass or working as part of the event staff). Please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you on the volunteer submission list or reference our staff list.
If you are a vendor looking for media credentials to cover your organization’s attendance at the speedway, please email us at email@example.com.
If you are a videographer you MUST register with the speedway for access on a case by case basis. This includes any form of video media. Absolutely, no LIVE or On-Demand coverage is to be broadcast without permission from WVMS or FloRacing. Any (which includes Facebook live) without the request and permission from speedway or FloRacing officials will result in the immediate removal from speedway grounds. To apply for access and a waiver, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Notification Schedule and Pickup
Once your application has been successfully submitted our team will review it and reach out with any questions. You should hear back about your application within a couple days of applying.
Media credential packets will be prepared for approved media and can be picked up at the VIP/Staff ticket booth. This is located at the bottom of the main VIP hill (Southeast booth). Please follow up to any email notifications as we send updated media news in the weeks ahead of race week.
