Mercer, PA (July 15, 2011):  Mercer Raceway Park is pleased to announce a new program that will help all active drivers and car owners to thank their existing sponsors and to attract new ones. 

“This Driver Thank You Program is a great way for racers to express their appreciation to their benefactors,” said track owner Bill Altman.  “By helping them to grow their sponsor relationships, we are also helping to increase the number of racers who can participate at each and every race meet.  It is a win-win situation,” Altman added.

For all races remaining on the 2011 schedule, the speedway will rent available VIP booths to any active driver or car owner and it will provide eight (8) tickets, all for just $100!!  Additional tickets may be purchased for the low, low price of $10, representing a savings of at least $2 per ticket.

Food and beverages will not be included in this innovative program, but the speedway will cater the event if special arrangements are made in advance.

VIP booths are available for each race on the schedule.  However, the number of booths available each race night is limitted, so interested racers are encouraged to make arrangements as soon as possible.  Arrangements can be made in advance by calling Track Manager Frank Benic at 724-699-1260.  Reservations can also be made at the track office on any race night.
