Piney Point is in St. Mary's County, a little over an hour south of the Capital Beltway. St. Mary's County is served by the three airports serving the Washington, DC metro area: Baltimore-Washington International (BWI), Reagan National (DCA), and Washington-Dulles (IAD). Although limo service is available, we recommend renting a car.
Lexington Park is the commercial center of St. Mary's County, and is an easy 20-minute drive from the race venue. Hotels, chain restaurants, office parks and shopping centers are located on Rte 235, the main thoroughfare, near the Patuxent River Naval Air Station.
