FREE PIT PASSES FOR FANS AT O'REILLY AUTO PARTS
FORT WORTH-DALLAS (September 19, 2000) - "Free pit pass" are words seldom heard in the world of racing, but those words will be ringing across Texas for the upcoming O'Reilly Texas Showdown Pennzoil World of Outlaws event on October 12 and 14 and the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series O'Reilly 400 presented by Valvoline DuraBlend on October 13.
The coupons, redeemable for the free pit passes, will be arriving in stores this weekend and by Monday, Sept. 25, fans can visit 300 participating O'Reilly Auto Parts stores in Texas and Oklahoma to pick up them up.
"This is so exciting for us and our fans," said speedway general manager Eddie Gossage. "O'Reilly Auto Parts has been a great partner in making this happen. A pit pass puts fans up close to the action and behind the scenes for a race like never before, it's really going to be a huge bonus to the race weekend."
Fans can get free pit passes to one, two or all three nights: the O'Reilly Texas Showdown on Thursday and Saturday at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track or the O'Reilly 400 on Friday night at the superspeedway.
There is no purchase necessary at O'Reilly to get the coupons. A race ticket to the specific event is required to redeem the free pit pass coupon. Fans may redeem the coupons on the day of the event. Pit passes for the O'Reilly Texas Showdown may be redeemed at the Texas Motor Speedway/O'Reilly Auto Parts display just inside the front gate of the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track. Pit passes for the O'Reilly 400 may be redeemed at Gate 7 of the superspeedway. A limited number of pit passes will also be available race days at the speedway ticket office. Fans may obtain one free pit pass per race ticket. Coupons are available while supplies last and available at all participating O'Reilly stores listed at www.texasmotorspeedway.com.
Tickets are on sale now by calling the Texas Motor Speedway ticket office at (817) 215-8500 online at www.texasmotorspeedway.com.
