Martinsville Speedway Unveils New Ticket-Office Hours
MARTINSVILLE, VA. (Jan. 30, 2004) -- With racing fever about to set in on the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup world, Martinsville Speedway officials announced today that the track's ticket-office hours will be expanded.
The expanded hours will coincide with the kickoff of the 2004 season in two weeks.
Beginning Saturday, February 14, Martinsville Speedway's ticket office will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The expanded hours will be in effect until the Advance Auto Parts 500 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup race at Martinsville Speedway on April 18.
"We know that fans don't keep nine to five hours, Monday through Friday," said Martinsville Speedway president Clay Campbell.
"We know fans have the need to order tickets after they get off work. We also know that Saturday and Sunday are the days that racing is on radio and television and these are the days fans get really excited about racing. If they get racing fever the next few weekends they can pick up the phone, give us a call and order tickets."
Tickets for both the Advance Auto Parts 500 on Sunday, April 18, and the Kroger 250, on Saturday, April 17, are on sale and can be purchased by calling 1.877.RACE.TIX. Advance Auto Parts 500 tickets may also be purchased online at www.martinsvillespeedway.com

Anyone buying an Advance Auto Parts 500 ticket between now and April 9 can receive $5 off the purchase of a Kroger 250 ticket. Children's truck tickets are discounted $1 when bought with an Advance Auto Parts 500 ticket.
The Advance Auto Parts 500 weekend kicks off on April 16th with MW Windows Pole Day with time trials for both the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series and the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.
