In light of rising gas prices and the economic hardships that many NASCAR fans are facing today, Watkins Glen International and Sunoco are trying to give fans a little relief at the pumps. Fans that purchase an $85 Turn 11 Grandstand weekend ticket for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series' Centurion Boats at The Glen can receive a $20 Sunoco gas card for each ticket ordered. The gas card can be redeemed at over 400 participating Sunoco retail outlets within a 300 mile radius of Watkins Glen International.
The Centurion Boats at The Glen weekend, August 7-10, has always been a great way for families to have one last weekend of summer fun before the kids go back to school, but now it's even more affordable. Since fans receive one gas card for every ticket ordered, a family of four could receive $80 in gas cards—that's the equivalent of almost one whole ticket free! The offer is good for one gas card per WGI ticket voucher with a limit of four ticket vouchers per household.
To receive your gas cards, make a purchase at a participating Sunoco dealer and receive your Watkins Glen International ticket voucher. Once you have the voucher, call 866-461-RACE to order your tickets for the Centurion Boats at The Glen and mention "Sunoco." You will receive your gas cards with your tickets approximately two weeks prior to the event. The offer ends July 25, 2008.
