Looking to use a handheld scanner at the NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) race at Auto Club Speedway this coming Sunday (October 13th)?
While it’s always fun to check out the latest technologies at the race track, in reality, they’re just tools, much like a Sharpie or a retractable scissor lift.
What you really need to know is how to use them properly and if they’re worth the money. Let’s take a quick look at how to scan a ticket at Acs.
Get A TICKET
As with most events you attend, whether it’s a game or a concert or a shopping centre or whatever, getting tickets to events is the best way to ensure you get in. At Acs this weekend, all tickets—general admission, camping, and paddock—are priced at $30. Save money by getting a Groupon!
The Convenience Of Vending Machines
For those of you who are driving, there is a convenience store at the entrance to the garage that sells drinks, snacking foods, and other sundries, as well as all of the necessary tools you might need, including a scanner. So if you are running short on time, you can buy a few snacks, a soft drink, and a scanner.
The Safety Of Using A Handheld Scanner
While it’s always fun to have new gadgets and gizmos at the races, if you do decide to use one, always make sure that you practice safe usage and take the proper precautions. Like most technologies, handheld scanners can be dangerous if not used properly and if you do end up using them on yourself or others, you’ll need to see a doctor soon. The good news is it’s not that dangerous, especially compared to other items sold at the venue, but it’s still something you need to avoid.
Make Sure You’re In An Enclosed Area
No matter what kind of scanner you have, whether it’s for coins, ID, or credit cards, make sure you’re in a well-protected space. There are many scenarios where exposure to radio waves can lead to cancer. Find a quiet place and enjoy the show.
Check The Website For More Info
After you’ve purchased your ticket and goodies, head over to the website for the event you’re going to see and click on the button that says ‘Showtimes, Tickets, & More Info’.
You’ll see a list of times the gates open and close and a map with the location of the various entrances. You can also click on the images of the different seating options to see a larger version of the image and get a better sense of what to expect.
If you’re going to the concert, remember to bring along your ID, as they may ask for it upon entry. If you don’t have it, you may be turned away and might miss the concert.
How To Use A Paper Wallet
If you’re the sort of person who frequently attends concerts and other events, whether online or in real life, and you don’t want to carry around a lot of cash or credit cards, you can opt to use a paper wallet instead. If you do decide to use one, make sure you practice safe usage and take the proper precautions. Paper wallets are a safe and convenient way to carry around small amounts of money and can be quite a handy tool for those who frequently travel or go to concerts and other events. There are many companies that make paper wallets, such as My Wallet. Online shopping has made it much easier to get paper wallets in a few days, rather than weeks, as it used to be.

More Than Meets The Eye
With all of those safety tips in mind, why not have a little fun with it and use a novelty item? While it’s always fun to check out the latest technologies at the races, in reality, they’re just tools, much like a Sharpie or a retractable scissor lift. So if you do end up using one, don’t be too alarmed, but do make sure that you are familiar with its proper use and take the necessary precautions before, during, and after using it.
