FORT WORTH-DALLAS (May 25, 2000) - The Pronto Auto Parts 400 and Casino Magic 500 weekend is only 15 days away and the excitement is contagious. Saturday, May 27, Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World in Grapevine will host the second annual "Ready to Race" event in conjunction with Texas Motor Speedway to kick off the pre-race activities around the Metroplex.

Saturday's events include: A NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series autograph session and show truck display from Noon until 2:00 p.m. with drivers David Starr and B.A. Wilson. Other activities throughout the day include ticket giveaways, NASCAR and Indy Racing gear giveaways, the Indy Racing Experience interactive display, as well as two full-size Indy showcars on display - one driven last year by defending IRL champion Greg Ray, a Plano native.

While inside, Bass Pro Shops shoppers can also register to win four (4) pit passes to the Pronto Auto Parts 400 or Casino Magic 500.

"We love to provide ways for fans to meet the drivers and get up close to the cars and trucks," said speedway general manager Eddie Gossage. "Ready to Race is an exciting day at Bass Pro Shops for the whole family."

Ready to Race is free to the public. The Indy Racing Experience will be on display today through Saturday along with Greg Ray's champion Indy car.
