Due to the unlawful video, photo and trademark reproductions with respect to participants, events and trade names, it is necessary to strictly enforce the Bandimere Speedway and NHRA rules and guidelines with respect to the usage and sale of such media. Bandimere Speedway does not prohibit the use of still or video cameras at the race track; however, the sale of such photos or video is strictly prohibited without prior written approval of Bandimere Speedway or the NHRA, depending upon the event.  No drones are allowed.
