Due to security restrictions in place, only those vehicles driven by someone with a Department of Defense identification card will be able to drive onto the U.S. Naval Academy grounds. Fans without a DoD ID card who are attending track meets must park outside of the USNA. It is suggested that fans attending track meets park at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium and ride the shuttle bus to and from meets. Otherwise they must walk through the security gate and to the field.

The all-weather MONDO track located northeast of Michelson Hall and Chauvenet Hall is the site of Navy's outdoor track and field meets.
Considered to be one of the premier facilities in the United States, it is named in honor of Vice Admiral Jonas H. Ingram, who commanded the U.S. South Atlantic Fleet during World War II. He was also the Naval Academy Director of Athletics from 1925-1930.
The track underwent a $1.7 million renovation in the fall of 2001, with new all-weather surfacing placed on the quarter-mile oval and jump areas.
The field area boasts six shot put circles, a discus-throwing circle and a javelin throwing area in the middle of the track. The field has four long/triple jump pits and a "D" zone that allows two high jump areas to be used concurrently.
The facility is also equipped with lights and Navy regularly holds 'twilight' meets at the facility. Additionally, the facility also features a Daktronics scoreboard, which displays current times and marks during meets.
