Charlotte offering Speedway College Party ticket program

CONCORD, N.C. (Sept. 18, 2017) - College students looking to earn a degree in racing excitement will receive valuable credit during the Oct. 8 Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. With the new Speedway College Party ticket program, NASCAR's homecoming allows college students to rev up for race day with an unmatched array of entertainment value - and "tuition" requires just $29 and a valid student ID.

Students looking to enjoy the ultimate tailgate experience can do so from the best viewing area - the race track - with general admission to the new Turn 4 Sun Deck, an open-air terrace with an up-close view of the race that will feature a DJ, lawn games and a bar for those aged 21 and older. Additionally, a Speedway College Party ticket provides students with access to the Brad Paisley concert saluting Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s JR Nation Appreci88ion Tour on Saturday, Oct. 7 at zMAX Dragway - the perfect way for budding NASCAR scholars to kick off their race-weekend education.

A tailgate area will be set up for students and can be accessed via the zMAX Dragway entrance off Bruton Smith Boulevard.

Student ticket packages are available by calling 1-800-455-FANS (3267), online at http://www.charlottemotorspeedway.com/tickets/college or in person at the ticket office. All Speedway College Party ticket purchases require a valid student ID for verification of eligibility. Tickets will be placed at Will Call for pick up on event day.
