First 100 Fans at "Cactus Trials" Sprint Cup Test Receiving J.J. Yeley Collector Cards
A number of fun and exclusive NASCAR opportunities await race fans at the March 3 Sprint Cup Series test session at Phoenix International Raceway.
The first 100 fans in attendance will receive a free, pre-autographed collector card courtesy of Sprint Cup Series driver J.J. Yeley.
Now in his third full Sprint Cup Series season, Yeley is in his first year driving the No. 96 DLP HDTV Toyota Camry for Hall of Fame Racing, and will be at the track to test in advance of the April 12 SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500&trade; at PIR.
Additionally, one NASCAR fan will have the chance to join Yeley for a short meet-and-greet session at the track. Fans can sign up to win the meet-and-greet opportunity at the PIR showcar display until 12:00 p.m., when one winner and a guest will be chosen for the chance to meet the Phoenix native later in the day.
Each fan entering the facility for the test will also receive a glow-in-the-dark SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500&trade; wristband, and if they are spotted wearing the wristband during the day, they will be entered for the chance to win pre-race pit passes for the April 12 Sprint Cup Series event.
The March 3 testing session will be open with free admission to anyone holding a grandstand ticket to the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500&trade;. Fans can park on the PIR grounds and enter the facility at Gate 7. For those without tickets who would like to attend the test, April race tickets will be available for purchase at the Gate 7 ticket office.
Gates open with the beginning of on-track activity at 9:00 a.m., and the facility closes with the final session of testing, at 9:00 p.m. Cars will be on track from 9:00 a.m. to noon, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., and 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams will also participate in a closed-to-the-public test session on Tuesday, March 4, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
