Following Saturday night’s Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth crash and Stewart’s subsequent helmet toss at Kenseth’s car, Atlanta Motor Speedway has created a promotion giving fans the opportunity to take advantage of a special post-incident ticket price while choosing side in who was at fault in the tangle.
Through Sunday night’s AdvoCare 500, Stewart fans purchasing three Lower Champions Grandstand tickets will receive their fourth ticket for only $14 while Kenseth followers can receive their fourth ticket for only $17, representing savings of $85 and $82, respectively. The ticket prices reflect the car numbers for both drivers involved in the much talked-about crash while racing for the lead in Saturday’s Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol.
The special pricing is for start/finish line area seats in rows 1-23 of the Champions Grandstand. Tickets may be purchased online at www.atlantamotorspeedway.com, through the Atlanta Motor Speedway ticket office at (877) 9-AMS-TIX, at Ticketmaster outlets or in-person at the AMS ticket office or ticket windows this weekend.
“This is a fun tongue-in-cheek way of rewarding fans planning to attend this Sunday’s AdvoCare 500,” said AMS President and General Manager Ed Clark. “I expect Sunday night’s event to continue the on-track intensity we have seen the past several weeks as drivers fight to make their way into the 2012 Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. The conflicts that will come as a result aren’t over.”
