Deal combines racing event ticketsWritten by Toledo Free Press Staff Writers | | firstname.lastname@example.org
A ticket package that saves fans $90 per ticket for two major motorsports events was announced by Summit Motorsports Park, an NHRA track in Norwalk, Ohio, and Michigan International Speedway, a NASCAR track in Brooklyn, Mich., on April 27.
Racing fans can purchase a discounted Fan Value Pack ticket package that includes reserved seats, pit passes and free parking to two major races: the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals June 25-28 in Ohio and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Michigan 400 held Sunday, Aug. 16 in Michigan for $90.
The two tracks created the combined ticket package “to offer fans a better value, savings and convenience,” a news release said. The tracks are located 120 miles apart and have overlapping fan bases.
NHRA stars such as John Force, Greg Anderson and defending Funny Car champion Tony Pedregon will race down the drag strip up to 300 mph when the Christmas tree lights turn green at Summit Motorsports Park in June. In August, NASCAR stars Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards and Dale Earnhardt Jr., will race around the two-mile oval.
MIS president Roger Curtis said, “This ticket package is a great way to enjoy a diverse schedule of motorsports this summer. In this economy, race fans are looking for ways to save money while adding real entertainment value for the dollars they spend.”
“Both tracks have a lot of fans that attend both events,” added Bill Bader, Jr., president of Summit Motorsports Park. “This way they can purchase one ticket package that offers a lot of value.”
Fans buying the Fan Value Pack will get a reserved seat to the August NASCAR Sprint Cup event valued at $65 and a pit pass valued at $50, plus a reserved seat to the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals for Saturday qualifying or Sunday final eliminations with a pit pass included, valued at $55. Parking is included at both events.
By buying both tickets in the Fan Value Pack, fans also save ticket service fees, adding up to a total of $90 in savings.
Fan Value Pack tickets will be available through the Summit Motorsports Park ticket office.
Fans from either track can buy tickets for both races through Summit Motorsports Park by calling (419) 668-5555 or by going to http://www.SummitMotorsportsPark.com and looking for the Fan Value Pack icon. Visa and MasterCard are accepted.
The Fan Value Pack combination is a limited time offer will only be available through Monday, June 15.
The Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals is the 12th race of the 24-race NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event at Michigan International Speedway is the 23rd race of the 36-race NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
