Auto Club Speedway Making Race Weekend ‘Rookies’ Feel Like a ‘Pro’ with Special Ticket Package


SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, CALIF. (Aug. 9, 2010) –  Auto Club Speedway once again wants to make sure your NASCAR “rookie stripe” doesn’t get in the way of having a great time during NASCAR’s Pepsi MAX 400 weekend Oct. 8-10 at Auto Club Speedway. 

NASCAR drivers shouldn’t be embarrassed to show off their “Rookie Stripe” – a yellow rear bumper that identifies a rookie driver in a NASCAR race.  They should instead show it off with pride saying “I’m up for the challenge.  Bring it on!”  And that is just what Auto Club Speedway’s “First Time Fan Package” intends to do -- make it easy to shed the yellow tape on your back bumper and enjoy the excitement and happenings at Auto Club Speedway like a pro. 

For only $99 (a savings of $38) “rookies” receive:

• Reserved grandstand seat (rows 6-10) for the Chase for the Sprint Cup playoff race – the Pepsi MAX 400 on Sunday, Oct. 10.
• Pre-Race Pit Pass – the place to be before the action on the track starts.
• Racing Electronics scanner rental -- a handheld device that offers in-car audio feeds, the MRN radio broadcast and other special features to get you through your first race.
• $10 in food vouchers to experience race day goodies like Gordon Biersch garlic fries and Sprinkles Cupcakes.
• “How To” First Time Fan Flyer – your instructions on how to have a great day at Auto Club Speedway from how to experience the Opportunity, California FanZone to “Who’s playing on stage?” to “Where can I get a Sprinkles Cupcake?”
• “My first race” pin to wear proudly and tout the fact you no longer have your yellow stripe!
• Parking pass

For only $75 (a savings of $37):

• General Admission ticket for the 300 NNS race on Saturday, Oct. 9 to see Danica Patrick’s West Coast return to Auto Club Speedway.
• Pre-Race Pit Pass
• Racing Electronics scanner rental
• $10 in food vouchers
• “How To” First Time Fan Flyer
• “My first race” pin
• Parking pass
