Earnhardt Drives Sales Also

Want to know what one great race – won by its most popular driver - will do for NASCAR? Just ask the folks at North Carolina Speedway.

This past weekend’s Winston 500, won by Dale Earnhardt, was so exciting, so thrilling, so breath-taking, that the phones at Rockingham – host of this weekend’s race – were ringing off the hooks with fans in search of tickets.

“I’ve never seen anything like this before” said Deanna Ingram, ticket manager for North Carolina Speedway. “It’s truly amazing that one driver is so popular, and can make the phones literally ring off the hook. I’ve had to bring in extra help just to handle the additional phone calls and orders.”

Fans expected to see a repeat performance by Earnhardt may get exactly what they’re after. Earnhardt has three wins and nine Top 5s at “The Rock.”

And now he’s in another championship battle, currently 210 points behind Bobby Labonte with four races remaining.

“Dale did exactly what we needed to do to stay in the race for the championship, and that was win the race”, said car-owner Richard Childress. “Now we need to go to Rockingham and do the same thing.”

Tickets are still available for Saturday’s Sam’s Club 200 Busch Series race and Sunday’s Pop Secret Microwave Popcorn 400 at Rockingham. To order, call the speedway ticket office at 910-582-2861.
