Jeff Gordon Ticket Package Now On-Sale, Includes Q&A With Four-Time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion
Race fans can help AARP and five-time Bristol winner Jeff Gordon in the Drive to End Hunger.
Teaming with Bristol Motor Speedway, AARP and the AARP Foundation, Gordon, a four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champ, is offering a new, enhanced ticket package for the Aug. 27 IRWIN Tools Night Race. It includes a question-and-answer session with Gordon on the day of the race. Due to space limitations in the BMS hospitality area, availability is limited, so fans are encouraged to purchase tickets promptly.
A $4 donation from each package sold will benefit Drive to End Hunger, an initiative in which AARP, the AARP Foundation, Gordon and Hendrick Motorsports have teamed to fight senior hunger, a problem that affects more than 6 million older Americans.
“We are thrilled that Bristol Motor Speedway is making such a generous commitment to the AARP Foundation’s effort to alleviate hunger among our parents, grandparents and other loved ones,” said AARP Tennessee State Director Rebecca Kelly. “We hope that thousands of race fans take advantage of this opportunity to see Jeff in person, cheer him on in the race and help us all ‘leave senior hunger in the dust.’”
AARP is reaching out to nearly 3 million members in Tennessee and seven other states via mailings, email and social media platforms to encourage them to take advantage of this opportunity.
Fans who purchase the tickets also will receive a Drive to End Hunger hat and a BMS 50th anniversary poster featuring Gordon.
The Jeff Gordon ticket package is $124 and 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 Food City 250 ticket to the package, the cost is $169.
BMS recently introduced a ticket offer for fans that gives them the opportunity to take part in a question-and-answer session with their favorite drivers. Others include Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson, Clint Bowyer, Jeff Burton, Kasey Kahne, Paul Menard, Tavis Kvapil and David Gilliland.
iBelong members (Bristol Motor Speedway season ticket holders) can add the driver Q&A for only $15. There is limited space, so members should reserve their space now.
