Texas closing backstretch seating; lowering some ticket prices
Texas Motor Speedway will usher in a new era in 2014 with the arrival of the world's largest HD video board by closing the backstretch seating so all ticket holders can benefit from the new amenity as well as offering the lowest-priced individual frontstretch ticket for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races in speedway history. Texas Motor Speedway will offer select individual seating on the frontstretch for $30 to both the Texas 500 and AAA Texas 500, the best price point for a NASCAR Sprint Cup event since the speedway opened in 1997.

The previous low was $40 in the inaugural year and the 2014 pricing offers a 38 percent savings from the lowest individual frontstretch ticket of $49 available this past season. The price point also will become the most economical for all Sprint Cup race seating as the backstretch grandstand will be closed for those races beginning in 2014. The section offered 1,000 seats in the first two rows for Sprint Cup races at $20 and the remaining 8,955 seats at $40.

The section was not being utilized at the present time for any other annual major races (IndyCar Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series) with the exception of the Sprint Cup Series events. The move, which reduces the overall grandstand seating capacity to 112,552, will allow all fans with seats the opportunity to enjoy the world's largest video board beginning with its debut at the Texas 500 NASCAR doubleheader weekend.
