As we mentioned last week, we are not increasing the price of our Cup event tickets next year, kids (ages 12 and under) will still receive free gate admission all weekend and we will continue our Worry-Free Weather Guarantee Presented by AccuWeather.
The absolute best way to ensure you have a ticket for 2020 is to have a 2019 Pocono 400 or Gander RV 400 Sunday race or weekend camping ticket. The reason for this is because of our annual renewal program. Any 2019 ticket holder will have priority to purchase 2020 tickets and will save up to 20% on those tickets once they renew.
Our lowest-priced adult ticket for NASCAR Cup Series events is $45. Two adult ticket holders, with each being allowed to bring up to four kids for FREE, can attend a 2019 race for just $90. If they choose to renew for 2020 tickets, those same two adults and up to eight kids can attend Day 1 or Day 2 of the 2020 double-header weekend for just $72.”
