zMAX Dragway takes Fan Accessibility to Another Level with Limited Number of Don Schumacher Racing Hospitality Package
CONCORD, N.C. (March 1, 2011) - NHRA fans are already used to the unmatched accessibility to the drivers of their sport, thanks to every ticket to an NHRA event being a pit pass, but that experience will be taken to the next level with the Don Schumacher Racing hospitality package at the VisitMyrtleBeach.com NHRA Four-Wide Nationals.
A limited number of Don Schumacher Racing (DSR) hospitality packages for Friday, April 15, are now on sale to the public for $99 per person.
The DSR hospitality package includes a seat in the John Force Grandstand, accessibility to the DSR hospitality village, food and beverage with chef-prepared meals at designated times and appearances and autograph sessions from DSR drivers such as Antron Brown, Ron Capps, Johnny Gray, Matt Hagan, Spencer Massey and Tony Schumacher.
"This kind of interaction is actually what got me hooked on drag racing," said Brown, driver of the Matco Tools/U.S. Army Top Fuel dragster.
"When I was a kid and could hang out in the pits with Kenny Bernstein,
I remember how cool that was. I'm very excited for these fans to come be a part of the team, not just in stands but next to the racecar. The great thing about being in the hospitality area is you are up close and personal. You're so close you can touch the nitro!"
The DSR hospitality package is only available on Friday, April 15, while supplies last. Fans that have already purchased $35 tickets for Friday can purchase the DSR hospitality upgrade for only $64. The DSR hospitality area is located in the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series Pro Pit area between the DSR car transporters.
Fans purchasing the DSR hospitality package will be able to watch the crews tune the racecars up close and personal before and after each round of qualifying while enjoying food and beverages at tables located under the hospitality tent. DSR drivers will make appearances throughout the day for question-and-answer sessions and to sign autographs for the fans.
Fans can purchase the DSR hospitality package for the VisitMyrtleBeach.com NHRA Four-Wide Nationals by phone at 1-800-455-FANS (3267) or online at www.zmaxdragway.com.
