Summit Motorsports Park, Michigan Int'l partner on discount ticket package
Wednesday, May 06, 2009


A ticket package that saves fans $90 per ticket -- a savings of 50 percent -- for two major motorsports events was announced by Summit Motorsports Park, the NHRA track in Norwalk, and Michigan Int'l Speedway, a NASCAR track in Brooklyn, Mich.

Fans can purchase a discounted Fan Value Pack ticket package that includes reserved seats, pit passes, and free parking to two major races for $90, a savings of 50 percent: the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals June 25-28 in Ohio and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Michigan 400 Aug. 16.

The two tracks created the ticket package to offer fans a better value, savings, and convenience. The tracks are 120 miles apart and have overlapping fan bases.

NHRA stars such as John Force, Tony Schumacher, Greg Anderson, and defending event Funny Car champion Tony Pedregon will race down the dragstrip at 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 keep fans on the edge of their seats from green to checkered flag as they 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 have a summer of speed by purchasing one ticket package that offers a lot of value.”

Fans buying the Fan Value Pack will get a reserved seat for the August NASCAR Sprint Cup event ($65 value) and a pit pass ($50 value) plus a reserved seat for the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals for Saturday qualifying or Sunday final eliminations with a pit pass included ($55 value). Parking is included at both events.

By buying both tickets in the Fan Value Pack, fans also save ticket-service fees, adding up to $90 in savings.

Fan Value Pack tickets will be available through the Summit Motorsports Park ticket office.

The Fan Value Pack combination is a limited-time offer 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 Michigan Int'l Speedway event is the 23rd race of the 36-race NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
