WALK THE TRACK AT CHICAGOLAND SPEEDWAY PRIOR TO THE GEICO 400, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15
Return of the Coca-Cola Family Track Walk Welcomes Fans on Track with Members of the Coca-Cola Racing Family
Joliet, Ill. – August 15, 2013 – Prior to the start the GEICO 400 on Sunday, Sept. 15, fans with a Pit and Infield Fan Zone Experience pass will be able to participate in a walk around the track at Chicagoland Speedway led by members of the Coca-Cola Racing Family. The Coca-Cola Family Track Walk program is an experience that encourages health and happiness and brings the community together. It provides thousands of fans with the chance to get out and get active by taking a lap of their own with their favorite drivers – on foot.
As a long-time supporter of NASCAR, Coca-Cola has been involved with stock car racing for more than 50 years and has been the official sparkling beverage of NASCAR since 1998. Through its partnerships with industry leaders, Coca-Cola refreshes racing fans at the majority of NASCAR-sanctioned tracks, including Chicagoland Speedway.
Chicagoland Speedway fans will have an exclusive opportunity to participate in the event, as the Coca-Cola Family Track Walk only visits three tracks in 2013. In order to gain access to the pre-race track walk, in addition to having a GEICO 400 race ticket, fans will need to purchase a Pit and Infield Fan Zone Experience pass which is available for $50, a benefit that is free for 2013 Season Ticket Holders. With the Sunday Pit and Infield Fan Zone Experience pass fans can also enjoy access to NASCAR personalities Q&A sessions, tech inspection viewing areas, access onto pit road, and an up-close access, from the front stretch grass, of GEICO 400 driver introductions and pre-race concert performance by country music star Brantley Gilbert.
All fans with a GEICO 400 race ticket will have the ability to access the track immediately following the conclusion of the race. Fans will be able to sign the start/finish line that some of their favorite NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers crossed including the winner of this year’s GEICO 400.
For the third consecutive year, Chicagoland Speedway will host the first race of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup this September – the first of ten ‘playoff’ style NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races in pursuit of the 2013 championship. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will kick off the weekend on Friday, Sept. 13 along with NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying. On Saturday, Sept. 14, the Dollar General 300 powered by Coca-Cola NASCAR Nationwide Series returns, with the GEICO 400 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup concluding the weekend on Sunday, Sept. 15.
