    NRA 500 @
    Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas
    Saturday, April 13 @ 6:30 PM CST

    The nice people at Chevrolet have given us a fair number of very nice tickets to the NRA 500 race for this Saturday 4/13 @ Texas Motor Speedway. The race starts at 6:30 PM, but there is a bunch of stuff going on starting much earlier including Ride & Drive events and a Sara Evans concert too.

    If anyone wants to go, please RESPOND TO THIS POST and extra points for posting to our FACEBOOK PAGE. We'll determine how to give these away based upon the number of people who are interested. (update: see below)

    There are only a few tickets, and they usually are VERY good tickets, sometimes with extra perks that only the manufacturers can offer - but no promises on that. Please only respond if you'll be able to use the tickets.

    * NRA 500 Sprint Cup Race
    * Up Close Look at the 2014 Chevy Silverado & 2014 Chevy Impala (exclusives just for us!)
    * Chevy Ride & Drive Event - Get to do a test drive.
    * Sara Evans Concert!


    -- Update --


    Just heard from GM that these are VERY GOOD seats (PU 427 - $140 each) and each one comes with the pre-race credentials ($78 value) that gives you cold pit access and "mosh pit" access to the Sara Evans concert. So each person will get two tickets that have a combined total value of over $230 after you all of the ticket fees are included. I do not have them in hand until tomorrow, but that's the information that I've been given.

    -- Update 2 --

    I got this from

    -- Update 3 --

    I think there are going to be a lot of people who want these tickets, so please just respond to this thread and I'll do a random two-part drawing tomorrow. One group will be members who have been recently active on this website. That includes members who have just come back to the site after a long absence. The second group will be everyone else. (HINT: Try to make at least five or ten posts on here between now and when I do the drawing.)

    -- Update 4 (Thursday Morning!) --

    BREAKING NEWS ... GM just sweetened the deal and are giving us all HOSPITALITY PASSES FOR THE VILLAGE OF CHAMPIONS. That means free food and drink and hobnobbing with all of the other people who are in there as well.

    ** THIS MAY or MAY NOT include a special appearance by some very well known Chevrolet racers. That's all I can say about that. **



    This is the list of winners that have accepted and say they can be here on Saturday:

    #1 & #2 - repley81 (he's on his way!)
    #3 & #4 - McClintoc (Will meet in the morning)
    #5 & #6 - STEPHENSON121588 (Will meet in the morning)
    #7 & #8 - Gold Z (Not responded yet!)
    #9 & #10 - ewmassey (not responded yet!)

    Other picks:
    - MauryFrench had a schedule conflict at the last minute, so he put his tickets back into the pot.
    - cdvntx said the timing was just too fast so he can't make it (that's understandable)

    - Backroads - Alternate #1
    - drymoacke - Alternate #2
    - nathymauro - Alterate #3

    Thanks, we know. Does that mean that you want to be considered for one or two tickets? I'll wait until tomorrow to figure out who's going to get the tickets, but active members (including those who joined in August 2007 and just came back to the site and made several posts to the site recently) will get priority. :)

    Why can't it be true? GM and Chevrolet love their truck guys and they had some extra tickets to give away so they gave old Steve a call and asked me if I knew of some guys on my site that would want them. Heck yeah I said. Check the original post in this thread as I update how I'm going to figure out who gets them. Maybe a random drawing of people who respond by a certain time tomorrow.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Got it, we'll put your name into the hat. I guess I'll do a drawing tomorrow ... right now there's no way to know how many people ask for the tickets, so I'll just watch through the night and see what it ends up being by tomorrow sometime.

    Ok, I'll put your name into the ring. Nice to have a newbie on the site join in ... even better is a newbie who's signed up and maybe makes 15 posts in his first day on the site. #justsaying.

    Ditto for you to country boy, lol. Looks like it's going to be a random drawing, and somehow random drawings work out better for people who come back to the site and make a bunch of posts in a day or two. Funny how that works out.

    Ditto for Earl and the rest of the guys who've got some ... shall we say ... <cough> lack of posting activity on the site in the last few days. <cough>

    Ok, glad to see so many Texans back on a CHEVY TRUCK SITE! YEAH!!!

    Please re-read the updates I made to the Original Post in this thread. I'm going to probably do two groups of random drawings. Group 1 will be members who have recently - <cough> like today or tomorrow <cough> - made five or ten posts to any forum on this website. Group 2 will be everyone else. (Something like that) ... so you'll have better luck if you jump in and make some more posts to the site ... just saying. :)

    Man I was hoping the race was at Pheonix. I would not be able to make it to Texas, but this is sure a great giveaway. There are sure going to be some lucky members going to a great race. I wish I could go. Good luck to all the others who are trying to get the tickets.GMTC really puts out some great giveaways to their lucky members.Truckdriverfromarizona.

    I'm going to reach out to GM and see if they have anything else like this going on that I can invite members to in other parts of the country. But for now, this is ONLY for the NRA 500 that's going on this Saturday.

    This a great offer on those tickets. i would love a chance to take my oldest son(just turned 16 yrs. old) to his first cup race!!

    - - - Updated - - -

    I had season tickets for about four years straight out at TMS, but due to some personal hardships it's been 4-5 yrs. since I've gotten to go out to the track. i never had a chance to take my son to a race back then. he was too young to appreciate it, but now that he is driving he would really enjoy it. PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE pick me!!
