Mansfield, OH - Mansfield Motorsports Speedway has added 7,200 additional reserved seats for the upcoming Ohio 250 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race, scheduled for May 16, 2004. The additional reserved seats on the backstretch will go on sale to the public at 8:00 A.M. on Monday January 12. The ticket cost for the new backstretch reserved seating areas is $35.

The track had originally planned on selling reserved seats only in its main grandstand on the front stretch, but changed those plans due to unprecedented demand.

"We expected this event to create a lot of interest with race fans in this area, but we didn't expect to sell out of our reserved seats so quickly," said MMS general manager Jerry Smith. "We have had hundreds of fans call us wanting reserved seats since we sold the last one on the front stretch. It just makes sense for us to please as many people as we can, and to do that, we are going to offer another 7,200 reserved seats."

Seating capacity for the Ohio 250 will be capped at 20,000. There will be approximately 6,200 general admission seats in addition to the reserved seating. General admission tickets are still available, and cost $30.

"We encourage people to hurry up and place their ticket orders as soon as they can," Smith continued. "We had an incredible Christmas season with a lot of people ordering tickets for gifts. With the pace of sales to this point, I have no doubt in my mind that these tickets will be sold out well in advance of the event, so if you want to see NASCAR history made in the state of Ohio for the first time in 50 years, you need to give us a call now and make sure you can be here."

To order tickets for the Ohio 250, contact the Mansfield Motorsports Speedway ticket office at (419) 524-0183. Backstretch reserved seats are $35, general admission seats are $30, and general admission tickets for Saturday's practice sessions and Bud Pole Qualifying are available for $10.
