You already know that the Bass Pro Shops/NRA Night Race is one of the most popular and exciting events offered by NASCAR. You know that this year’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway on Aug. 19 will be the last time around the track for racing legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. This is an unmissable event for many reasons. But did you realize that one of those reasons is the deep discount on tickets available to NRA members?
Navigate over to NRARaceTix.com and look at the deals on offer. You’ll notice, certainly, that the Night Race isn’t the only NASCAR event that you can purchase discounted tickets for. But first things first: Time to take advantage of that sweet 15 percent off the regular ticket price.
Click on the “BUY NOW” button and you’ll be redirected to the ticket sales website. Select “Find Tickets” for the prompt to enter your discount code—B17NRA—and get rolling. After the system verifies your code, you’ll have the option of selecting from the numerous sections designated for NRA members, with different pricing tiers available.
The ticket sales system will offer you the option of selecting your own seats within the section that you choose—but if you don’t feel comfortable using this feature or don’t have the latest version of Flash installed on your computer, the system can also pick the best available seats for you. Then it’s a simple matter of adding them to your online shopping cart—hint hint, now would be the time to buy discounted tickets for one of those other races too—and proceeding to enter your payment information.
When we gave it a spin, we were pleased with how the ticket-buying process balanced a wide range of options with ease of use. Most importantly, you have the opportunity to see one of Car and Driver’s “10 Events To See Before You Die,” all at a cost far below regular ticket price—and surrounded by fellow NRA members as you cheer for Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s last race as a driver. Your recommended course of action is clear.
