Season Tickets go on sale via the Internet on November 11 and by phone on November 18.

INDIVIDUAL RACE TICKET SALES

Customers on the preferred mailing list can begin sending in Individual Race Order Forms on December 2, while those on the mass mailing list can begin sending in individual race forms on December 9.

BILL MILLER, PRESIDENT

"We have realized tremendous growth here at California Speedway, bringing in the greatest and most diverse racing organizations anywhere, truly making us ‘America’s Ultimate Race Place,’” said Miller. “We made our season ticket packages to complement that variety, offering a true “season ticket” which includes every day of racing at substantial savings over the individual priced tickets. In addition, the Sunday package includes an opportunity to witness the premier events at a cost savings from the same seat during our reserved seat events. For example, an individually priced Sunday Winston Cup ticket in Level A is $110, for the Sunday Season Package an individual would get that day plus five other Sunday event days for $270 total. For the motorsports fan, we don’t believe they will find that value anywhere else."####
