New Jersey Motorsports Park offers Cumberland County residents "Dollar Day at the Races" at GRAND-AM Road Racing event on Friday, July 22

 

MILLVILLE, N.J. - One dollar will go along way on Friday, July 22 at New Jersey Motorsports Park. The park is offering "Dollar Day at the Races" to all Cumberland County residents, including $1 gate admission, $1 parking, $1 concession items and $1 karting. The promotion is exclusively available to Cumberland County residents with proof of residency.

 

One dollar event tickets for Friday, July 22 can be purchased online at www.NJMP.com under "Events." Children 12 and under are free.

"The concept behind Dollar Day at the Races is to reach out to the local community and say thank you," said Brad Scott, general manager of New Jersey Motorsports Park. "Cumberland County residents, no matter of what interest level they may have in motorsports, can come out for just a dollar and see what we are all about. We're one of only 11 tracks nationwide that host GRAND-AM, the premier sports car series in the U.S., and we want to celebrate their return to South Jersey with the residents of Cumberland County.

 

"Between the world-class sports car action on the track, and the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a go-kart, we encourage families and fans of all ages to come and see us on July 22," said Scott.

 

Friday, July 22 on-track sessions include practice for the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series, Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, Ferrari Club Racing Association and Porsche Club of America.
