You’re Invited: Irwindale Speedway “Press Pass Program”

Open to all MPG members: Irwindale Speedway is offering a Saturday night as a special guest up in the Speedway’s Shav Glick Press Box during one of the track’s 18 exciting nights of racing in the 2018 NASCAR season.

Track PR person, Doug Stokes, is the (perpetrator) er … “contact”: “We want interested members of the Guild, to see what a night of racing looks like from the press box of one of the country’s best-known short tracks.”

“We’ve got room for a member and a guest (or two members) each night … I’ll take “reservations” by email and try to accommodate everyone who wants to join us “upstairs” for a race. Again, there are 18 Saturday nights up for grabs between our March 10th opening and our final 2018 event on December 1st,” Stokes noted.

“I really hope that some of our members who’ve never had the experience will sign up for a night at the Speedway. I think that they’ll have an exciting time in the PB and come away with a different view of short track racing. We’ll even buy them a track dog and a soda!”

Of course parking and NASCAR pit passes are included in this package. Getting out to the track early (the Pits open early and that’s where you’ll sign for your credentials). NASCAR says no sandals or open-toed shoes if you want to visit the pits (honest!).

The track’s family-style “On-Track Autograph Party” starts at 5:45pm and the races fire off at 7pm sharp. The average event runs about 2 hours and 45 minutes and there’s a “Fan and Racers Happy Hour” right after the races in the Fan Zone.

RULES and REGULATIONS: Open to MPG members and their guest (or two MPG members … both must be over 18 years of age). A list of dates is attached, please choose three dates (first, second, and third choice) that you’ll be able to attend. We’ll book you for the best night available and send you a confirmation letter. (After that, the amount of fun that you have is up to you.)

We’re looking forward to hanging out with you “upstairs”!

Send your request to: doug@irwindaleeventcenter.com and please title it: “PRESS BOX.” We’ll set dates as soon as they come in and expect that all 18 of these fun event opportunities will be spoken for soon.
