Dale Earnhardt Jr. fans now have an added reason to root for the NASCAR superstar during the Sprint Cup at Chicagoland Speedway on February 20. If he makes it to Gatorade Victory Lane in the 2015 Daytona 500 two days later, fans who purchased tickets to the Chicago event will get their money back.
For fans who buy their tickets between now and 12 p.m. CST February 22, they have the chance to reclaim the money they put down if Earnhardt finishes first in the Daytona 500. The 40-year-old driver has won the prestigious race twice in his career in 2004 and 2014 and will be looking to add a third title to his collection when he races in Florida later this month.
The potential to refund the ticket price will only be available to fans who have purchased tickets since the announcement was made earlier this week. Only seats in locations A-I will participate in the contest while supplies last. Sections A-I include all rows in sections 101 thru 118 and 401 thru 417.
If planning to attend the Daytona 500 in Florida on February 22, Daytona 500 tickets on TicketIQ now average at $262.58 and get-in price starts at $59. Only last year’s race was more expensive in the last five years, with 2014 Daytona 500 tickets owning a secondary average of $275.66.
