College students and a NASCAR race?
Sounds like a party to me and Chase Elliott is throwing a bash and a NASCAR race will break out.
Atlanta Motor Speedway has partnered with Dawsonville, Georgia native and driver of the No. 24 Chevrolet SS for Hendrick Motorsports, Chase Elliott, to introduce the Chase U ticket package, the hottest new deal for college students attending the March 5 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race.
The package, popular among millennial fans currently enrolled in college, offers a near industry-low price point for a NASCAR Cup Series race, a festive pre-race tailgate party, complimentary food and drink and a chance to interact with Chase Elliott, the 2016 Rookie of the Year in NASCAR’s top series.
Buyers of a Chase U ticket will enjoy a low $24 ticket for a seat in the Lower Winners Grandstand, free parking at the race and admission into the exclusive Chase U tailgate party taking place from 10 a.m. to noon on the day of the race.
The tailgate will include complimentary food and beverage for each ticketholder, live music, tailgate games, a Daytona USA racing simulator and a free-entry cornhole tournament with prizes and awards.
Elliott will make an appearance at the party for a special Q&A session with tailgate attendees and will take time afterwards to meet with fans.
“Atlanta is providing an awesome race-day experience for the students that come to Chase U,” said Elliott. “I want fans to have a great time at the race, with their own party zone, live music, food, drinks, games and a grandstand ticket, all for $24. If I were able to go watch a race, this is a place that would be fun for me. Everyone there will have a great time, and hopefully we’ll make some lifetime NASCAR fans in the process.”
The Chase U ticket package is available only to college students with a valid student ID and can be purchased today by contacting the Atlanta Motor Speedway ticket office at (770) 946-4211, (877) 9-AMS-TIX or by logging on to www.atlantamotorspeedway.com.
