Ticket Price Restructuring For Henrico Grandstand Announced; Tickets On Sale Now Starting at $40!
In an effort to continue to provide the best experience possible for race fans, Richmond International Raceway announced today a ticket price restructuring for the Henrico Grandstand at America’s Premier Short Track. For the 2009 season, more than 18,000 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series tickets will be affected in the restructuring.
Tickets currently on sale for the May 2 Crown Royal Presents The Russ Friedman 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race and for events for the foreseeable future will reflect the new ticket price restructuring. Rows 1-5 of the Henrico Grandstand are now $40 per ticket and rows 6-15 are now $55 per ticket. The restructured prices reflect a 50% and 25% decrease, respectively, from the May 2008 prices.
“We have the best, most loyal fans in sports,” said Richmond International Raceway president Doug Fritz. “We recognize that times are tough and we want to offer our fans a lower entry point to be able to continue to enjoy the thrill of live NASCAR racing.”
Fans currently seated in these areas affected by the price restructuring have already been contacted by raceway officials. Fans seated in other areas of the facility who are interested in relocating to the Henrico Grandstand can do so by calling the Richmond International Raceway ticket office at 866-455-RACE (7223).
Offering more affordable seating while keeping the same high level of entertainment and on-track excitement is part of Richmond International Raceway’s continued effort to provide the best fan-friendly experience in motorsports. Race fans will also continue to enjoy free automobile parking on raceway property, as well as the ability to bring their own food and drinks into the grandstands in approved bags/coolers.
The May 1-2 NASCAR doubleheader weekend kicks off the 2009 racing season at America’s Premier Short Track. The Lipton Tea 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series will open the weekend “under the lights” on Friday night, May 1. On Saturday, May 2, three-time reigning Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon and more will battle defending race winner Clint Bowyer in the Crown Royal Presents The russ Friedman 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
