TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY READY FOR RUSH AS TICKETS GO ON SALE SATURDAY; FANS OFFERED MULTIPLE WAYS TO PURCHASE
FORT WORTH-DALLAS (Nov. 10, 1999) - The start of the 2000 race season at Texas Motor Speedway is more than four months away, but the race to see those events begins Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. Tickets for every race event in 2000 at the speedway go on sale on Saturday, and speedway officials are preparing for the rush.
"Our first day ticket sales have increased each year," said Director of Tickets John Schriever. "We sold tens of thousands of tickets on the first day last year and see no reason this year will be any different. We have provided several options for our fans to purchase tickets, and each of those methods will be operating on Saturday.
"If the number of phone calls and e:mail requests regarding tickets are any indication, Saturday's going to be a very busy day."
Beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, fans may purchase tickets in person at the speedway or by phone. Additional ticket agents have been hired to handle the heavy volume of phone calls and walk-up sales. Ticket agents will be operating from ticket trailers in the parking lot with additional agents taking ticket orders by phone.
Fans are expected to begin arriving at the speedway late Friday night and into the early morning hours on Saturday.
"We expect to have several hundred fans lined up at the trailers waiting for us to open on Saturday," said Schriever. "We will be ready when the doors open at 9:00 a.m."
