Race fans rejoice! On Monday, February 24, Advanced Price tickets go on sale to the May 2-4 Aaron’s Dream Weekend at NASCAR’s Most Competitive Track—Talladega Superspeedway. The Advanced Price tickets, which are available from February 24 to April 3, save fans money at nearly every ticket option, and for this highly anticipated race weekend the savings don’t stop there—for the first time ever kids have opportunities for "free" seating in the track’s exhilarating frontstretch grandstands.
Saturday kids’ tickets – for 12 and under – are free in every section of the grandstands and in multiple locations on Sunday. The remaining locations are reduced a minimum of $50 for Sunday kids’ tickets. This unbelievable ticket offer has never been made at this historic NASCAR venue and is available even beyond the Advanced Price Ticket period.
Advanced Price tickets offer fans $10 off regular pricing for the weekend’s headliner, the Aaron’s 499 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on May 4, and $5 off Saturday’s quadruple header that includes two races (ARCA’s International Motorsports Hall of Fame 200, Aaron’s 312 Nationwide race), Sprint Cup’s new pack racing qualifying format and the traditional Saturday Night Infield Concert (must have a Sunday ticket for admission). Two-day tickets for both Saturday and Sunday start at $50.
“The Aaron’s Dream Weekend is shaping up to be one of our most talked-about event weekends in recent memory, thanks to all the fan enhancements made to the sport and our facility, so the benefits offered to early ticket buyers should be a huge incentive to go ahead and secure your seats,” said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. “The competition is going to be fierce during the new qualifying rounds, as well as during the Aaron’s 499 now that NASCAR has put a premium on winning races. Fans shouldn’t forget about the ARCA race and the Saturday Night Infield Concert either—this weekend is going to be huge!”
Fan enhancements have been ramped up in 2014, starting with NASCAR’s pre-season announcements about qualifying and the Chase. Qualifying for the Aaron’s 312 and Aaron’s 499 will now consist of three elimination rounds where drivers take to Talladega’s high banks in groups, competing just like it’s a race. The changes made to the Chase place practically any race winner into the Championship, and given the Aaron’s 499’s unpredictable nature, it’s going to be a battle like never before.
Talladega Superspeedway has also put into place some serious fan enhancements that include the free kids’ ticket initiative, new large Sprint Vision screens, smoke-free grandstands and the Driver Introductions Pit Pass Upgrade.
