Yeah the road is in a park, so there is a toll. They don't charge the race organizers $10 to use the road on race day though; they gouge the hell out of the organizers... part of the $40 price tag for race tickets, along with the cops and the helicopters and EMT's and staff and haybales and support vehicles and so on. Personally, I shrug off spectating at events that cost more than $30, especially with flat track being in the $20-$30 price range (that's good spectatin').
