Tickets for one of the most anticipated short track races in the world will go on sale at all Food City locations beginning Wednesday, Feb. 13.

Food City 500 tickets for Sunday, April 7 will begin being sold in-store at $50 for adults and $10 for kids (12-and-under). Each ticket purchased awards shoppers 500 additional ValuPoints on their Food City ValuCard. ValuPoints are redeemable to save money on fuel, groceries and more.

"Steve Smith and the Food City team have meant so much to us throughout the years as our longest serving Speedway partner," said Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager for Bristol Motor Speedway. "The best part of the in-store program is that you can purchase your race tickets and utilize the additional ValuPoints earned to stock up your cooler for the Food City 500."

All tickets will feature blind-reserved seats selected by knowledgeable members of the BMS ticket office. Tickets will be sold at the customer service area of each Food City location. The tickets will then be emailed within seven days of purchase. The final day to purchase race tickets in-store will be Tuesday, April 2 for the Food City 500.

"Food City is proud to be the longest running sponsor of Bristol Motor Speedway. We're excited to have the opportunity to expand that partnership to include great low prices on tickets to one of NASCAR's premier venues," said Kevin Stafford, vice president of marketing for Food City. "Last season's ticket sales promotion was extremely successful and we're looking to make this year's program even better - so stop by one of our convenient locations to take advantage of these great savings!"

Food City serves as one of the most collaborative partners in the NASCAR industry. In addition to being the second longest Cup entitlement sponsor, Food City has been the innovative visionary behind Food City Family Race Night, which continues to be the longest running and most popular fan fest in NASCAR. The event returns for a 32nd year to BMS Hospitality Village on Friday, April 5.
