FORT WORTH-DALLAS (Feb. 24, 1999) - The March 28 PRIMESTAR 500 NASCAR Winston Cup race is nearing a sell-out faster than in 1998, with only single seats remaining on the backstretch.

But, there are two ways for fans to still have prime seats for the big event.

"A few season ticket holders missed the payment deadline on their season tickets, " said speedway ticket director John Schriever. "As a result, we have about 200 prime frontstretch seats that are actually available for the 1999 race season."

The available season tickets range in price from $235-$345 and include all six major race events at the speedway including: the March 27 Coca-Cola 300 NASCAR Busch Series race; the March 28 PRIMESTAR 500 NASCAR Winston Cup event; the June 11 Pronto Auto Parts 400 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race; the June 12 Longhorn 500 Pep Boys Indy Racing League event; the October 15 Bluebonnet 300 NASCAR Craftsman Truck race; and the October 17 Lone Star 500 Pep Boys Indy Racing League championship event.

"At this point, there’s no other way to buy a PRIMESTAR 500 frontstretch grandstand seat from the speedway," said speedway general manager Eddie Gossage. "Even with the addition of 15,000 seats for this year’s event, the tickets have flown out of here at an unbelievable pace."

Race fans who want to sample a taste of the good life have the opportunity to take a seat in one of the luxury suites overlooking the frontstretch. Individual suite tickets are available for the Coca-Cola 300 and the PRIMESTAR 500. Suite tickets are $255 for Saturday and $325 for Sunday. Fans will enjoy a spectacular view of the race, a lunch buffet, complimentary soft drinks and a cash bar.

"Hundreds of fans took advantage of the suites last year," said Gossage. "It’s an incredibly comfortable way to watch a race."

Season tickets and individual suite tickets are available by visiting the speedway ticket office during business hours or calling (817) 215-8500.
