Sept. 30, 3:15 p.m. CDT — Officials for Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois, today announced all ‘Saturday’ reserved seats for the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals have sold out.
“Today was the perfect combination of great weather, incredible track conditions, the highest horsepower cars on the planet and a loyal motorsports fan base in the St Louis region,” said Chris Blair, Gateway Motorsports Park’s Executive Vice President and General Manager.
“We’ve been blessed to have three amazing Saturdays during the 2017 racing season, as our crown jewel events of NASCAR, INDYCAR and NHRA all had spectacular crowds. St. Louis is not only a great sports town, it’s a great racing town.
“Our momentum keeps building as we look forward to an even better 2018 and beyond.
“Track owner and CEO Curtis Francois took a tremendous risk when he rescued this venue five years ago and it’s amazing to see how not only the local community but also the racing community have rallied around his vision.”
Tickets for the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals may be purchased at the gate and kids 12 and under are free. Every ticket is a pit pass, allowing fans to see their favorite drivers and watch while cars are serviced between rounds.
