'Dega still has 2-day tickets starting at $60 ea or just the Cup race at $40 ea...amazing prices!

Richmond still has $40 tickets available in the Henrico Grandstand...wow, Richmond tickets are sometimes hard to come by.

OK, this takes us through the first weekend in May.

I checked Texas and all the back stretch tickets are gone, which are usually the least expensive. Did a search for 2 best seat tickets and the price was $116 each.

Phoenix has tickets starting at $25/ea...GREAT PRICE!!

From Watkins Glen:

Watkins Glen International announced during a press conference held at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel this afternoon, that they have teamed up with McDonald's to lower ticket prices in the McDonald’s Family Grandstand during the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at The Glen and Zippo 200, NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series race weekend, August 6-9, 2009. The cost per ticket is now $65 down 24% from $85 dollars in 2008 and a new 12 and under kids’ ticket can be purchased for only $20, in the McDonald’s Family Grandstand.

A weekend reserved ticket in the McDonald’s Family Grandstand provides 4-day admission and a reserved seat on Saturday and Sunday, August 8 and 9 with a Sprint Vision (large screen TV) view. To break it down, fans would pay less than $20.00 dollars per/day ($16.25) with the new $65.00 ticket price, and less than $5.00 per/day for the new 12 and under kids’ ticket at $20.00. The McDonalds Family Grandstand can seat up to 700 people.

*Most regular tickets seem to be going at $85 ea but the do have seats in the esses for $20

Hey everyone I wanted to let you know that I live in Bristol (and am at my track twice a year every year)and have been hearing some deals on tickets. Also they are not sold out yet and my husband said it still possible to go to the track to purchase tickets!! If anyone wants to let me know how many they are looking for I can keep a ear out.

Don, you know what? I think it is time that bands and singers, and as far as that goes, actors also, don't necessarily deserve the money they are making. I mean really...millions of dollars they are earning...when you think about it, it is just crazy! I guess all these exe's enormous salaries that have come out has really got me thinking. While some of our drivers said they would take a cut in pay to keep the sport going...you don't hear of that in the NFL, NBA, baseball or any of the other sports do we?

Las Vegas did not sell out yesterday, even though they reduced ticket prices at the gate starting on Saturday.

I'm hoping that all tracks take note and announce changes soon. And while promoters are at it, what's with these 75 to 100 dollar tickets for concerts.

Martinsville has family 4 pack tickets for $99 for the March 29th race. You can buy back stretch tickets for the cup race for $25...that is a great deal. I can also attest to the fact that there are no bad seats at Martinsville because it is such a small track. There is no infield camping there...so no campers to see over, just haulers. Take binoculars and watch the team members and drivers go in and out of their haulers from the backstretch.

You know the economy is bad when tickets are still available for a Bristol race! There are even season ticket packages available. Didn't see any special prices...but hey....it's Bristol, baby!

For the Atlanta races March 7-8 (it will be the truck series and the cup, NW is off)

The cup race: Family 4-pack for $159 includes 4 sodas, hot dogs and are lower level seats. Turn 3

The first 26 rows of the Jr fan section are $88 (normally $105) Turn 4

Elliott grandstand - Adult tickets $39 Children and students with ID $19. Turn 3 tickets

Kobalt Tools buy 1 get 1 free
When you make a purchase of $25 or more at Lowe's, customers get a FREE ticket with the purchase of a regular ticket to the Kobalt Tools 500 held on Sunday, March 8, 2009. Tickets are good for seats in the Petty Grandstand, up to a $95 value - and they're in turn four, right in front of the pit entrance so you'll see all the action! While supplies last.

All tickets purchased can be upgraded to a 3 day ticket (pole day, truck race) for $39...that is a pretty good deal.

OK...this is all I have time for right now but takes us through the first of March.

OK...for any of those that can get to the Infinion race, there are still $35 tickets available as well as more expensive tickets. The $35 tickets are tickets on low rows right in front of the action!

The spring Texas $20 seats are gone, but the $40 ones are still available, and yes they are backstretch, low rows, but we sure enjoyed the race last fall on the backstretch.

Congrats on your tickets, Meri. I wish I could get to one of these races this year but so far my finances prohibit it. But I'm not giving up yet.

Thanks so much, Jan, for keeping us up to date on those good ticket prices. One of my bills just might have to go lacking if I can get a good deal on one close to me.

Bobbi
Keep on moving no matter how small the steps. May the Good Lord take a liking to you and yours always!

I am going to try and alert you when I hear of good deals for race tickets and post them here....if you hear of good deals, please, please post them here for other fans to see.

Here is the first one:

emoticon NEWS ALERT!!! for 2-17-09 only!

***For people interested in going to the Coca-Cola 600***

Starting tonight at 5pm until 9 pm LMS will be selling the first 1700 tickets sold...get this...5 tickets for $50 !!!! I called this morning and the tickets are in the Jewel box (Turn 2) or 4th turn Terrace (obviously turn 4). These tickets will be sold by phone or in person....if you can go and buy the tickets at the track, you also receive a Matt Kennseth diecast. WHAT A FRICKING DEAL IS THAT????? I am excited because handicap seating is also included...THAT NEVER happens!!! I had already given up going to the 600...but dang...who can pass up that deal?

The phone number for the track is
1-800-455-FANS (1-800-455-3267)

LMS is doing this because today is the 17th...1700 tickets to honor Matt and his Daytona 500 win....Matt won his first cup race at the CC 600 in 2000.
