TEXAS LOTTERY AND TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY TO LAUNCH NEW SCRATCH TICKET GAME AND SECOND-CHANCE DRAWINGS
(AUSTIN) – Racing fans and lottery players across Texas can take a hot lap to any Texas Lottery® retailer, beginning April 18, to pick up the newest version of 50X Speedway Riches, the latest Texas Motor Speedway branded scratch ticket game from the Texas Lottery. The $5 game returns with $20.1 million in total cash prizes, including five $50,000 top prizes, in addition to non-cash second-chance prizes. The overall odds of winning an instant-win cash prize are one in 3.99, including break-even prizes.
“After great success and popularity in 2021 among racing fans and lottery players, the Texas Lottery is thrilled to renew its partnership with Texas Motor Speedway to launch a brand-new version of the 50X Speedway Riches scratch ticket game,” said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery. “The new 50X Speedway Riches game will help generate important revenue for the State of Texas while providing scratch ticket players chances to win great cash prizes and unique second-chance prizes that will feature once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.”
The Texas Motor Speedway Second-Chance Promotion provides players the chance to enter non-winning 50X Speedway Riches tickets into any of the four promotional second-chance drawings to be held throughout the run of the game. Each drawing will award one VIP Suite Experience package and 250 Texas Motor Speedway Merchandise Prize Packs. In a final Special Drawing, one player will be selected from all entries received from the first four drawings – including those already selected to win Merchandise Prize Packs and VIP Suite Experiences – to win an Ultimate VIP Suite Experience package, which includes an exclusive suite for one winner and 15 guests, a 15-minute driver meet and greet, VIP passes to a race, and much more.
The first three entry deadlines for the separate second-chance drawings are May 6, June 10 and July 15,
with the fourth drawing and Special Drawing date yet to be determined. For more information about the 50X Speedway Riches scratch ticket game and promotional second-chance drawings, visit texaslottery.com.

Texas Motor Speedway is so honored to be part of this fun.”
