Track invites fans to fill up their car with family and friends for
$15 daily entry during Community Appreciation Weekend
(August 30) – In an effort to give back to the area surrounding Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the last five decades, the track announced it will provide a ‘carload’ discount for the NASA Championships presented by Toyo Tires September 9-11.
Fans are invited to pile in their car, truck, van or SUV and gain entry to Mid-Ohio on any day of the three-day amateur motorsports championship event for just $15 with a coupon. This coupon will be advertised exclusively in north central Ohio newspapers: the Mansfield News Journal
, Bucyrus Telegraph-Forum
and Marion Star
on September 6, 8 and 9. Fans will need to bring a hard copy of the coupon with them to the gate and are welcome to come back another day provided they present another coupon.
“We want to give back to the community that has supported us for so long. The carload discount is something you saw often in the past and we wanted to bring it back during our 50th season. I hope fans pack their vehicles and head to the track for a great weekend of racing,” said Craig Rust, president of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
