Does the loud roar of a race car get your adrenalin flowing and your heart beating faster? If you answered in the affirmative, the Kansas Speedway has a special seat reserved just for you,
Yes, it’s that time of the year when long-silenced automotive masterpieces are put to the test in nonstop riveting action. It doesn’t seem to matter how often these cars go around a circular track or how many times the drivers crash into each other. The crowd is addicted to this highly charged environment.
From September 30 – October 3 the Kansas Speedway will come alive with loyal fans and visitors clamoring for a piece of the action. Serving as the Official Auto Club for the Kansas Speedway, AAA will be providing roadside assistance service to race fans during this time frame.
Events scheduled during the aforementioned dates include:
- The Kansas Lottery 150 ARCA Racing Series on September 30
- The O’Reilly Auto Parts Qualifying Day on October 1
- The Kansas Lottery 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series Race on October 2
- The Price Chopper 400 presented by Kraft Foods on October 3. This is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
As a special crowd-pleaser for the October 3 Sprint Cup Series, Sam Hornish Jr. will go bumper-to-bumper with Kansas native Clint Bowyer, and Missouri natives Carl Edwards and Jamie McMurray along with other NASCAR stars. The defending Price Chopper 400 winner, Tony Stewart, will also get his fair share of attention.
This year the Kansas Speedway will have weekend only specials available for fans to buy tickets to the Price Chopper 400 presented by Kraft Foods and the Kansas Lottery 300.
The weekend’s special packaging cost is as follows:
- Race weekend packages start at $165
- Qualifying Day tickets are just $10
- Parking is free at Kansas Speedway
While on the premises fans can also visit AAA’s booth at the track starring the #77 Dodge Show Car. Racing simulators and prize-winning opportunities will also be a part of this event.
Call 1-866-460-RACE (7223) to purchase your tickets. You may also want to check out their website at www.kansasspeedway.com.
So grab your keys, get your motor in gear and race off for some fun and adventure.
By the way, it would probably be wise if YOU drive within the proper speed limits. There is no doubt that you likely would have a hard time convincing law enforcement officials that you were a part of the NASCAR family, should you be the recipient of a much-hated speeding ticket.
