Jeff Gordon AARP Q&A Ticket Package Available Prior To Food City 500
Bristol Motor Speedway has created a special ticket package with Gordon for the upcoming Food City 500 that includes a race-day question-and-answer session.
Due to space limitations in the BMS hospitality area, availability is limited so fans are encouraged to purchase tickets promptly.
With every ticket package sold, a $24 donation will be made to the AARP Foundation to support Drive to End Hunger, a national effort by AARP and the AARP Foundation to help the nearly nine million older Americans who face the threat of hunger. Since Drive to End Hunger was launched in 2011, the initiative has donated more than 5.8 million meals and driven corporate and individual donor commitments with an expected value of $15.1 million.
The Jeff Gordon ticket package is $92 and includes a hat. Packages may be purchased by calling the BMS ticket office at 423-BRISTOL or 1-866-415-4158. Fans should ask for the Jeff Gordon AARP package. Should fans wish to add a Ford EcoBoost 300 Nationwide Series ticket to the package, the cost is $127.
Fans who have already purchased tickets to the Food City 500 may upgrade to the Gordon package for an additional $15.
Other ticket packages with question and answer sessions also are available and feature five-time Sprint Cup champion and 2010 Food City 500 winner Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne, Danica Patrick, Elliott Sadler, Travis Pastrana, and 2011 Camping World Truck Series champ Austin Dillon.
Johnson’s Q&A is designed for the younger race fan, although adults also are welcome. As part of Johnson’s session, kids take part in a Lowe’s Build and Grow workshop and receive a car to assemble, with some guidance from Johnson. The workshop is limited to the first 100 kids for whom packages are purchased.
The Q&A packages for kids start at $48, while adult prices begin at $80 for both the Johnson and Kahne ticket packages.
Saturday’s packages for Patrick, Sadler and Dillon start at $37 for kids and $67 for adults. The Patrick package includes a t-shirt, instead of a cap.
BMS season tickets, which include the Food City 500 (March 18) and IRWIN Tools Night Race (Aug. 25) Sprint Cup races, as well as the Nationwide events and the K&N race, also are on sale. Pricing for all four races begins at just $175 in the Wallace Tower.
A March race weekend package also is available starting at $99 that includes the Food City 500 and the Nationwide/K&N Pro Series East events. A package in the Wallace Tower for both Sprint Cup races also is now available for $99, while packages for fans 15 and younger are available for the March races at half price. Lower row seating for the Food City 500 is available, with tickets starting at $65.
