How To Get Tickets To The Biggest Sold Out Races
Racing fans are truly fanatic about their sport. The talk racing,adorn themselves with their favorite driver’s number, and pack up the RV to travel around the country following the smell of burned rubber and exhaust. To attend a race is to attend a weekend long event filled with camping, parties, and of course racing. Normally there are several races held over the weekend as well as open sessions such as qualifying or practicing. Sometimes getting a ticket to the big race can be a difficult and expensive process. There are ways to obtain a ticket beyond winning a call in promotion on the local radio station.
There are many online ticket vendors available that put people who are willing to sell their tickets in touch with those looking for tickets. Often this is the best option for those who are willing to pay for premium seats. These online vendors insure their tickets. This protects the purchaser from counterfeit ticket scams. Since this is an online transaction it is best not to wait until the last minute to order the tickets. The tickets will most likely need to be shipped.
There is another way to obtain tickets to a big race that many people do not consider, but it is often the cheapest way to get a premium ticket. Corporate sponsorships abound in the world of racing. Because of this there are often unused tickets given out for every race. Local banks, auto stores, lawyers, and national corporations are given loads of comp tickets for race day. Not everyone is a race fan and so many of these tickets go unused. It does not hurt to put out feelers to the businesses you deal with on a regular basis to see if there are any tickets available. You might even get them for nothing.
Be careful of race day scalpers. Scalping is illegal in some states, and often filled with counterfeit tickets. If you do choose to go this route, the closer it gets to the green flag the cheaper the tickets are.
Just because the sign on the ticket window says, “Sold Out!” does not mean you cannot get in to see the race. You might have to pay a little more or call in a few favors, but if you really want to make the race, you can.
