Fan Packages for Bass Pro Shops MBNA 500 Are the "Pits"
Tuesday, October 19, 2004
Fans aren¿t allowed in the locker room before an NFL game. They aren¿t allowed on the court at an NBA game. And they aren¿t allowed near the ice before an NHL game.
But race fans can be in the pits before NASCAR races, offering them an unparalleled look behind the scenes of big-time auto racing. And Atlanta Motor Speedway has made it even easier, offering three different packages at three different price levels for fans to take advantage for the Oct. 29-31 Bass Pro Shops MBNA 500 weekend.
For the casual fan, who just wants a glimpse of the crews feverishly working on pit road during practice and qualifying, there is the Friday-only pre-race pit pass, which sells for just $75.
Friday-only pit passes will allow fans into the pit area for all of the day¿s action, including practice and qualifying for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup and Busch Series, and final practices for the ASA and Crown Royal IROC series.
For fans looking for a weekend-long pit road experience, there is the $125 weekend pre-race pit pass. With this pass, fans will be inside the highly coveted pit area, in the heart of the racing activity for the entire weekend, including qualifying for the NEXTEL Cup and Busch Series, practice for both series, the ASA 150, the Aaron¿s 312 Busch race and the Crown Royal IROC season finale. Fans will have access to pit road all weekend, all the way until one hour prior to event time for the Oct. 31 Bass Pro Shops MBNA 500.
And for the die-hard fan, who is looking for a truly unique race weekend experience, AMS offers the Lap Sponsorship package for $300.
Lap sponsors will have a lap to call their own in the Oct. 31 Bass Pro Shops MBNA 500. They will also receive two coveted passes into the pre-race pit area, the heart of the action, for the entire race weekend.
Not only that, lap sponsor will also receive a pair of tickets to the Friday, Oct. 29 Georgia-Pacific Qualifying Night and ASA 150, as well as tickets to the Saturday, Oct. 30 Aaron's 312 Busch Series race and Crown Royal IROC season finale.
As always, fans must be at least 14 years old and have appropriate attire to entire the pit area. Lap sponsorships, pre-race pit passes and tickets for all three days of racing during the Oct. 29-31 Bass Pro Shops MBNA 500 weekend are available now by calling the Atlanta Motor Speedway ticket office at (770) 946-4211.
