IGNITES SEASON TICKET SALES FOR 2000

FORT WORTH-DALLAS (Oct. 20, 1999) - The crowning of Plano's Greg Ray as 1999 Pep Boys Indy Racing League Series Champion has spurred Texas Motor Speedway ticket sales for the 2000 season. The checkered flag at the Mall.com 500 last Sunday ended the racing season at the speedway and ushered in the excitement for the 2000 schedule of events.

"The season ticket sales for next year is an indication of the fans' excitement about the Indy Racing League championship being decided here this year as well as all the events we have planned for 2000," said speedway general manager Eddie Gossage. "Our ticket hotline has been busy, and our PSL and season ticket holders are ready to go racing in 2000."

Race fans will be treated to more than just great seats as part of the 2000 race season ticket package. In addition to guaranteed seats for the NASCAR Winston Cup, Busch and Craftsman Truck series races as well as the Pep Boys Indy Racing League events, season ticket patrons have added amenities.

As part of the 2000 race season ticket package at Texas Motor Speedway, fans can receive two VIP pit passes for each qualifying day for purchasing six or more season tickets. The package also features first chance at prime seat locations, a year's subscription to the Speedway Today newsletter, and a two-week trial membership to The Speedway Club, plus a post-season party with food, beverages, track rides, and more.

The 2000 race schedule at Texas Motor Speedway will be bigger and better with two new exciting events on the horizon. Season tickets are also on sale for the Pennzoil World of Outlaws sprint car series. Exciting sprint car racing is coming to the speedway next spring for the Southern Bleacher Classic on March 30-31 and again for the O'Reilly Texas World Finals on Oct.12-13. The races will be run on the new Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track now under construction.

Recently, the speedway also announced the addition of road racing for the 2000 season on a new course to be built in the speedway infield. The Grand Prix of Texas (American Le Mans Series and BF Goodrich Trans-Am Series) is scheduled for Sept. 2-3, on the new road course. Season ticket holders receive 25% discount on tickets for that special Labor Day weekend event.

The 2000 season-opening weekend features the Texas 300 (NASCAR Busch Series) on April 1 and DIRECTV 500 (NASCAR Winston Cup Series) on April 2.
