Stadium parking planners strongly suggest that you get to the track before 5pm. It is also advised that you avoid driving through the parking lot when entering from the turnpike and insted use Rt 120/Patterson Plank road and enter via the East Tunnel gate. This route may be used with horse transportation vehicles as well, following the road behind the new grandstand around to the paddock. It's going to be very hot this week in New Jersey so plan your trip accordingly.
