As NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers strap in for the 2008 season, Atlanta Motor Speedway prepares to offer tickets to the March 9 Kobalt Tools 500 for what could be the lowest price in track history.

Starting at 9 a.m. next Monday, Feb. 18, fans will have the opportunity to purchase Kobalt Tools 500 tickets, normally priced at $100, for the price of the winning car number of Sunday's Daytona 500.

One thousand tickets in rows 14 through 26 of the frontstretch Winners Grandstand will be available at this special discounted price while they last. Each purchase will be limited to a maximum of 10 tickets.

After the initial 1,000 tickets are sold, fans will receive a $10 discount off each frontstretch grandstand ticket purchased Monday or Tuesday until 5 p.m. Tickets can be purchased by calling the AMS ticket office at 877-9-AMS-TIX, (877-926-7849), 770-946-4211, or by visiting the ticket office.

"It's very simple," said AMS president and general manager Ed Clark. "If Martin Truex Jr., drives the No.1 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet to victory, fans can purchase a $100 ticket for $1.

"The last six cars to win the Daytona 500 have all carried numbers of 48 or lower," Clark continued. "This is a great opportunity for 1,000 fans to pick up one of the best seats to the Kobalt Tools 500 for a fraction of the regular price. "

More information on this promotion and the Kobalt Tools 500 can be obtained by visiting or by calling the ticket office at 877-9-AMS-TIX, (877-926-7849) or 770-946-4211.
