TicketForce is Now Providing Private Label Ticketing for Gateway Motorsports Park’s 2014 NASCAR World Camping Truck Series and NHRA Midwest Nationals
MESA, Ariz. – (Feb. 27, 2014) – Gateway Motorsports Park, one of the oldest raceways in St. Louis, Mo. and the region’s largest outdoor entertainment facility, has contracted TicketForce, a leading provider of ticketing solutions in the U.S and Canada, to handle its private label ticketing for its upcoming 2014 NASCAR World Camping Truck Series on June 14, 2014 and its AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals on September 26, 2014.
Built in 1967 as a simple, 1/8-mile drag strip, Gateway Motorsports Park has a rich history. Today, after its recent $11.5 million renovation and expansion, it is the largest outdoor entertainment facility in the region, spanning more than 200 acres.
Gateway Motorsports Park now boasts a 1/4-mile NHRA-sanctioned drag strip, a 1.25-mile NASCAR oval track, 1.6-mile road course, a newly built world-class karting facility and a fan pavilion. Gateway Motorsports Park is also currently in the design phase for a multi-use dirt facility that will feature off-road, sand drag and tractor pulling events. The multi-purpose outdoor facility is considered one of the top up-and-coming motorsports facilities in the U.S.

Bridge Opening Was Major Factor in Revitalization of Gateway Motorsports Park
Gateway MSP will transport honored veterans in bridge-opening parade
What: The opening of the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge celebrates the vital relationship between two states that share a dynamic city, cultural amenities and a rich history. “This bridge project was absolutely essential to our plans to reopen and revitalize Gateway Motorsports Park,” said Curtis Francois, Owner and St. Louis resident. “The investment in this world-class entertainment facility just didn’t make sense without the access this new bridge provides to motorsports fans across the region. We are thrilled to be a part of the opening ceremony parade.” Gateway Motorsports Park will have several vehicles in the parade to transport the dozens of veterans who will be honored at this special event.
The Mississippi River Bridge project was designed to create stronger pathways and connections between Missouri and Illinois. This massive project has been in development since 2001, and includes a landmark bridge structure, the realignment and reconstruction of Interstate 70 and several local roads on both states.
The project will provide needed traffic capacity, improve system linkages and community access, reduce traffic crashes, improve travel times, and enhance economic growth.
When/Where: February 8, 2014, Noon – 4:00pm Open to the Public
Celebration begins at 2:00pm and parade begins immediately following
