FONTANA, Calif., March 2, 2012 – NASCAR fans in Fontana can save on tickets to the upcoming Auto Club 400 on March 25 with the Walmart Family Track Pack. The $99 package gives families four race tickets, four hot dogs, four sodas and one program – a total savings of more than $100.
“We are making races affordable and accessible for fans,” said Rand Waddoups, senior director, Entertainment Properties and Brands, Walmart. “The Walmart Family Track Pack is a great value that gives local fans a way to take their whole family to the track together.”
Located 50 miles north of Hollywood, Auto Club Speedway will host the NASCAR Sprint Car Series, typically attended by many of Hollywood’s biggest stars. The Sprint race returns to Southern California, the home of five-wide racing. This nostalgic track is often used in filming television shows, commercials and major motion pictures.
