Street parking in the area will be restricted. Motorists should be on the lookout for temporary “No Parking” signs. Illegally parked vehicles may be ticketed or towed. If your vehicle is towed from a public street, call 703-558-2222.

Race attendees are encouraged to use Metro, however, if driving please utilize the parking garage at the Pentagon City Mall.
