FIRESTONE 600 POSTPONED
FORT WORTH, Texas (June 11, 2016) - The Firestone 600 Verizon IndyCar Series race has been postponed due to inclement weather and has been rescheduled for Sunday, June 12 at 1:15 p.m. CT.
Gates, suites and Victory Lane Club will open at 11 a.m. There will be no pre-race activities, including driver introductions, prior to the start of the race.
Fans with Saturday’s Firestone 600 tickets will use the same ticket for admission to Sunday's event. Others interested in attending Sunday's rescheduled Firestone 600 can purchase tickets at Gate 4 beginning at 11 a.m. CT.
If fans are unable to attend Sunday’s race, their unused ticket may be exchanged for another race ticket of equal or lesser value within one calendar year (1 for 1 ticket exchanges only). The original ticket buyer may contact the TMS Fan Relations team at 817.215.8500 to request replacement tickets and if the ticket holder is NOT the original ticket buyer, they need to return the physical ticket to the TMS Ticket Office in order to request an exchange. Any ticket may be upgraded for a future event by paying the difference in ticket price (based on availability). There will be no refunds on tickets given for rescheduled races. No credits will be issued for exchanges of lesser value and complimentary/zero dollar tickets may not be exchanged for a future date, but will be available for the rescheduled event.
The Firestone 600 will be broadcast live on CNBC and can be heard locally on 95.9 FM The Ranch and the IndyCar Radio Network (Sirius 212, XM 209) beginning at 1 p.m. CT.
This is just the second time in Texas Motor Speedway history an IndyCar race has been postponed due to weather. The Casino Magic 500K was originally scheduled for Saturday, June 10 and was eventually run on the following day and won by Scott Sharp.
In September of 2001, the Chevy 500k was postponed due to the events of 9/11. That race, originally scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 16 was ultimately run on Oct. 6 and won by Sam Hornish, Jr.
