Houston Raceway Park making it easier to attend NHRA race

HOUSTON (Feb. 9) -- As tickets for the 23rd annual O'Reilly NHRA Spring National continue to sell at a record pace, officials at Houston Raceway Park are stomping on the accelerator and offering yet another hard-to-refuse purchasing option for race fans.

The newly announced 50/50 Payment Plan option allows consumers to get tickets for the event, which runs from April 9-11, right now while deferring half the cost until March. Interested participants buying tickets at HoustonRaceway.com simply select "Payment Plan" at checkout to activate the offer. Upon approval, tickets will be emailed within minutes to print directly from a home or office computer.

"We're listening to the various needs of our loyal customers and this is something that has come up time and again," said Seth Angel, Houston Raceway Park's General Manager. "We recognize how careful people need to be with their entertainment dollar and we believe the 50/50 Payment Plan offers yet another way that we can help out."

No matter how many tickets are purchased under the 50/50 Payment Plan, customers will only need to pay for half of the costs up front with the remaining balance automatically debited next month.

"It's a small payment plan, if you will, that will help buyers spread out the expense of coming to the race," Angel said. "By doing this online, fans can pick the exact seats they want rather than have a computer select what it thinks is the best available option. And since the tickets are sent out via email to the purchaser's home or office computer, they can print them off and avoid standing in long lines when they get to the racetrack."

Houston Raceway Park offers an array of ticketing options from single-day tickets starting as low as $35 to weekend packages in the Darrell Russell Top Eliminator Club and RV campsites.

The Darrell Russell Top Eliminator Club is the ultimate way to experience NHRA Championship Drag Racing. Amenities include prime starting line reserved seating, access to the members-only TEC Hospitality Center, daily complimentary refreshments, complimentary catered meals on Saturday and Sunday, and a special gift bag. TEC guests also enjoy special meet-and-greet appearances by many of the top stars in the sport. Capacity is limited and the club is guaranteed to sell out.

Over the last few years, Houston Raceway Park has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in upgrades including extending the asphalt in the pits, resurfacing the racetrack, expanding the parking lots for the fans, refurbishing the suites, changing the position of the lights, improving the lighting on the track and in public areas, and building a dedicated Top Eliminator Club. They also have new, state-of-the-art highway access to make entering and exiting the facility very easy.

For additional information on the 50/50 Payment Plan option, call the Houston Raceway Park Ticket Center at 281-383-2666.
