FORT WORTH, Texas (May 19, 2014) – Kurt Busch, who is attempting the Memorial Day weekend double by competing Sunday in both the Verizon IndyCar Series Indianapolis 500 and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Coca-Cola 600, doesn’t need to triumph in either marquee race for Texas Motor Speedway fans to win.
Beginning today at www.texasmotorspeedway.com/double, Texas Motor Speedway is rolling out “Kurt Busch’s Two for Two for $2” ticket promotion where fans have an opportunity at securing two frontstretch grandstand tickets to the Firestone 600 Verizon IndyCar Series race at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday, June 7, for only $2 based off correctly predicting his finishes in both Memorial Day weekend races.
There are five general finishing categories for fans to choose from (top five, 6-10, 11-15, 16-20 and 21 to DQ-Disqualified) and if they pick the correct category in both the Indy 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and later that day in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway they are eligible to purchase two Firestone 600 tickets for $2. It is a huge savings as the lowest-priced individual ticket for the Firestone 600 is $40.
Busch, the 2004 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champ, will be driving the No. 26 Suretone Honda for Andretti Autosport in the Indy 500 and his traditional No. 41 Haas Automation Chevrolet in the Coca-Cola 600. He is looking to join John Andretti, Robby Gordon and Tony Stewart as the only drivers to compete in the Indy 500/Coca-Cola 600 double and Stewart as the only one to complete all 1,100 miles of racing in the two events.
Selections must be in no later than midnight CT Friday and those fans who correctly predict Busch’s finishes will be notified and sent a ticket coupon promotion code. Please visit www.texasmotorspeedway.com/double for additional rules and regulations pertaining to “Kurt Busch’s Two for Two for $2” ticket promotion.
The Firestone 600, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. CT, is the lone annual stop for the Verizon IndyCar Series at Texas Motor Speedway and features the likes of three-time Indianapolis 500 champion Helio Castroneves, reigning series champion Scott Dixon, 2013 Indy 500 champ Tony Kanaan, former NASCAR/Formula One/CART star Juan Pablo Montoya and third-generation driver Marco Andretti.
