U.S. 13 DRAGWAY & DELAWARE INTERNATIOJAL SPEEDWAY SEASONS JUST AROUND THE CORNER – NEW ADMISSION PRICING IN PLACE

Delmar, DE – Winter may only be halfway over but plans for the Spring openers and 2012 season schedules are already in place for the U.S. 13 Dragway and the Delaware International Speedway.

U.S. 13 Dragway will fire the engines first with a Tune & Test session on Sunday, March 4th and again on Sunday March 11th. E.T. Racing will begin on March 18th. The first Summit E.T. Racing series event will be Sunday April 1st and the first of the “Bad 8” series events will take to the quarter-mile on April 15th.

New for 2012 will be that the spectator admission of $12 will admit fans to both the spectator and pit sides of the track. The single admission will allow spectators to have access to the pits just like at national NHRA events.

The Delaware International Speedway will open its gates on Saturday night, April 7th and will be free to the public on the spectator side. The 2012 point season will start the following Saturday night, April 14th with “Delmar Night.” Action will feature the NAPA Big Block Modifieds, Super Late Models, AC Delco Modifieds, Crate Models, Mod Lites, Little Lincoln and Vintage cars.

Spectator admission for regular shows will show a slight increase at $15. Pit admission will remain at $25 and children age 13 and under will still be admitted free of charge when accompanied by an adult. The United Racing Club Sprint cars will make three appearances the first of which will be Saturday night April 28th as part of the William J. Cathell Memorial. Spectator admission for URC events will be $20.

The increase in gate admission was necessary due to the increased costs of electricity, gas and fuel for track prep, insurance and needed upgrades to the facilities.
