Gresham Motorsports Park today announced that tickets for the August 28 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East event would go on sale today at Noon Eastern Time.
Adult Tickets for the only NASCAR short-track touring series stock car race in Georgia this year are just $20.
Tickets are available at the GMP Track Office Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and are available anytime on the GMP Internet ticket portal - http://greshammotorsportspark.ticketforce.com/
The August 28 event will mark the first time a NASCAR race has been held at Gresham Motorsports Park since the mid 1980’s. The Jefferson, GA track was opened as Jefco Speedway with a NASCAR Sportsman (now Nationwide) Series event in 1967.
“This is going to be a great event,” said Dan Elliott. “This track was built on NASCAR racing and to have NASCAR back here again is going to be awesome for everyone – especially our fans. The K&N Pro Series is the best development series NASCAR has and a lot of the drivers you’ll see here at GMP on August 28 will be in the NASCAR Truck, Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series in a year or two. We expect a packed house for this race, especially since we’ve kept our regular adult ticket price of just $20 for this special event.”
NASCAR’s first appearance at GMP in more than two decades will take the green flag with a fan-friendly ‘NASCAR Night’ at Funopolis Family Fun Center in Commerce, GA. Fans attending the 6-9 p.m. event at the five-acre fun park will be able to compete against a NASCAR K&N Pro Series driver in a number of different activities including go kart racing, mini bowling, mini golf, team laser tag, bumper cars and various arcade games.
The Saturday, August 28 on-track action at Gresham Motorsports Park gets underway with NASCAR K&N Pro Series practice beginning at 11 a.m. There will also be rotating sessions of GMP Truck and Renegade Street Stock division practice throughout the day before the K&N cars qualify at 4 p.m.
An hour-long NASCAR K&N Pro Series driver autograph session is set for 5 p.m. with the 150-lap NASCAR race rolling off at 7:30 p.m. (Truck and Renegade main events to follow).
Gresham Motorsports Park is located in Jefferson, GA, right next to the Jackson County Airport (19A). For more information, please log on to www.GreshamMotorsportsPark.com
