"THE CHASE" COMES TO AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY; DALE JR. TURNS 35 -- LET'S ALL CELEBRATE!

San Bernardino County, Calif. (May 7, 2009) -- Southern California race fans have two great reasons to celebrate come October -- Southern California's inaugural "Chase Race" -- the Pepsi 500 at Auto Club Speedway and Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s 35th birthday.

As if getting the fourth race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup isn't enough, fans can also celebrate one of NASCAR's biggest stars' birthday in style. To help celebrate Dale Earnhardt, Jr.'s birthday, Auto Club Speedway is offering an $88 Dale Jr. Birthday Weekend Package, October 10-11th. Fans can also purchase Pepsi Rock n' Rows $35 tickets and be part of the celebration. Both are expected to sell out quickly.

The $88 Dale Jr. Birthday Weekend Package (a $150 value) comes complete with a Saturday general admission ticket for the NASCAR Nationwide Series race -- the Camping World RV Service 300 presented by Coleman; a Sunday reserved seat for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race -- the Pepsi 500 and a weekend pit pass that gets race fans up close and personal to all the on-track action.

In addition to the $88 Dale Jr. Birthday Weekend Package, Auto Club Speedway offers free parking, allows fans to bring in their own food and other cost-savings opportunities for fans to experience a full weekend of entertainment and fun for the entire family.

In February, fans gobbled up the reduced price $35 grandstand seats to experience the thrill of NASCAR at Auto Club Speedway. Race fans can once again get an up close and personal experience of the "Chase" by purchasing a seat in the Pepsi Rock n' Rows -- the first five rows of the main grandstands for the Pepsi 500 on Sunday, Oct. 11. The tickets are usually priced at $55.
