FANS THAT RENEW FOR 2012 SAVE MORE
Save Up to $130 on Four NASCAR Weekend Tickets with No Service Fees
WATKINS GLEN, NY – The excitement of the 2011 season at Watkins Glen International came to a close less than three weeks ago, but the 2012 season at WGI is right around the corner. Renewal brochures for 2012 will be shipped to account holders starting on Monday, October 10 – less than two weeks from today! Fans that renew will not only save the most money; they also have the opportunity to upgrade their seats and campsites before both go on sale to the general public. The Glen is again waving services fees and offering several payment plans to provide fans flexibility in paying for their purchase.
*Renewal Customers Receive the Biggest Savings*:
Watkins Glen International fans are among the most dedicated in all of motorsports and for that reason, fans that buy their tickets and campsites during the renewal period will save the most money on their purchases for the 2012 season. If fans renew their tickets by November 14, they can save up to *$130* on four weekend tickets for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at The Glen weekend, August 9-12. Even if fans purchase fewer tickets or plan to attend another event, they will save more money during the renewal period than at any other time with the combination of advance pricing and waived services fees. The offer to waive services fees will not last past the renewal period and is just another sign of appreciation for fans that plan to spend their summers at the historic road course.
*Payment Plans Available:*
The popular *Pick Your Plan* option returns and provides maximum flexibility on a four-part payment schedule. If fans renew by November 14, they can put down as little as 25-percent of the total purchase to secure their ticket package for the 2012 season. *Pick Your Plan* provides additional flexibility to race fans who may want to spread out their payments with the remaining three payments being made on February 6, April 4 and May 14. Renewal customers may also choose to pay half now and half on April 2 with the *50/50 Payment Plan*. Both of these plans can be used to renew for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at The Glen weekend or any other event weekend that has advance sales. All renewal orders must also be postmarked before the November 14 renewal deadline and all payment plans are only available for orders made with a credit card.
*Family Friendly Options:*
Bring the whole family as the extremely popular Kids Free program has become the Youth Free program which means free admission for all *Kids and Teens 18 years of age and under* during the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen, SCCA Glen Double Nationals and Glenora Wine Cellars U.S. Vintage Grand Prix presented by Welliver weekends. The free offer does not apply during the NASCAR race weekend; however, seats in all nine grandstands for youth 18 years of age and under are only $20. This includes the McDonald’s Family Grandstand which again offers a smoke and alcohol-free seating option.
*Upgrades or Relocations:*
Fans that renew by the November 14 deadline will also be able to upgrade or relocate their seats or campsites during the upgrade and relocation period, November 28 – December 2. Fans interested in taking advantage of this can call the Upgrade/Relocation Hotline at 866.461.RACE(7223), during those five days, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
