SMI NASCAR tracks adopt "weather guarantee" for ticket holders

Speedway Motorsports Inc. has unveiled a new inclement weather policy for ticket holders at all of its NASCAR tracks.

Under SMI’s new “Weather Guarantee,” if a NASCAR race is postponed due to weather and the ticket holder is unable to attend on the rescheduled date, a ticket credit can be issued toward a qualifying NASCAR race at any SMI venue.

The initiative covers Atlanta Motor Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Kentucky Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Sonoma Raceway and Texas Motor Speedway.

Texas has already implemented an inclement weather policy for ticket holders and SMI is now expanding the option to involve all of its tracks.

“Of all major professional sports, none is as heavily impacted by adverse weather as NASCAR,” said SMI president and CEO Marcus Smith. “With drivers already racing on the very edge at nearly 200 mph, even a little rain can have a dramatic impact on race weekend schedules.

“What we want to do is take weather out of the ticket-buying equation so fans can focus on having a great time and making memories on our premier NASCAR event weekends.”

Fans with an unused, eligible ticket will have 60 days from the original race date to request a ticket credit on a qualifying future event.

The credit must be used toward another SMI NASCAR event within one calendar year of the original race date or the same event the following year, even if it takes place beyond the one-year mark.
