Pepsi 400 ticket options in short supply

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 18, 1998) On July 4, 1998, a sellout crowd of NASCAR Winston Cup Series fans will experience "Daytona at the Speed of Light" with the inaugural nighttime running of the Pepsi 400. The last of the nearly 140,000 seats offered through the Speedway's ticket office have been sold.

However, a very limited number of tickets still exist through the following options for fans wishing to experience this spectacle in person:

Pepsi 400 Daytona Club -- A reserved Winston Tower ticket with padded seats for all three days of racing action, in-seat service, admission to the exclusive Daytona Club Hospitality Pavilion, pre-race pass and other amenities.

Superstretch Terrace -- A reserved seat providing viewing from one of the highest points on the Superstretch, cushioned seats, closed-circuit television, in-seat food and beverage service and admission to DAYTONA USA, the award-winning "Ultimate Motorsports Attraction."

Turn 2 Club -- A grandstand ticket to the Pepsi 400, exclusive air-conditioned fan hospitality area, live entertainment, pre-race pass, food and beverage service and other amenities.

The 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway will become home to the world's largest outdoor lighting project upon its scheduled completion in May. This year's Pepsi 400 will mark the first time a NASCAR Winston Cup Series event has been contested at night on a speedway larger than 1.5 miles.

A festive atmosphere will surround the three-day event including the State of Florida's largest fireworks show which will light up the sky immediately following the post-race Victory Lane celebration.

"The 1998 Pepsi 400 will be one of the greatest spectacles of the year," said John Graham, president of the Speedway. "Two of NASCAR's premier events are featured at the 'World Center of Racing' -- with the Daytona 500 beginning the season and the Pepsi 400 starting the second half of the season -- and now Daytona will also host America's largest July 4 picnic."

In addition to its capacity crowd, the 1998 Pepsi 400 will be witnessed by millions more on CBS Sports as it becomes the first live, prime-time network broadcast of a NASCAR event in the United States. The race will begin at 8 p.m. (EDT).

Other opportunities available to fans wanting to be part of "Daytona at the Speed of Light" include night practice on July 2 and daytime qualifying and night practice on July 3.
