Dec. 31 deadline nears for sweepstakes and brick placement
Shoppers can avoid Black Friday’s long lines and 4 a.m. wake-up calls by shopping from home and giving unique and affordable gifts this holiday season.
The NASCAR Hall of Fame, a 150,000-square foot interactive, entertainment attraction under construction in uptown Charlotte, N.C., opens May 11, 2010 and tickets, membership and commemorative bricks are available now with added incentives if purchased prior to Dec. 31, 2009.
For less than $20, someone can give their friend or family member a ticket to one of the most historic days in the NASCAR Hall of Fame history. A limited number of tickets are available for the grand opening day (May 11, 2010). In addition to this notable day, general admission tickets for all operating days are available.
“It isn’t very often you can say you were at an inaugural event of this magnitude,” said Winston Kelley, executive director of the NASCAR Hall of Fame. “The grand opening only happens once. What better gift to give than a chance to witness history?”
Ticket prices are $19.95 for adults, $17.95 for military and seniors (60+), $12.95 for children 5 – 12 and free for children under 5. The on-site box office is scheduled to open in the spring of 2010. In the meantime, tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster at 877-231-2010 or www.nascarhall.com.
Charter Memberships & Chance to Win VIP Experience
For as little as $25 for a child or $50 for an adult, race fans can give a one-year membership to the NASCAR Hall of Fame and – if they are one of the lucky winners of the NASCAR Hall of Fame VIP Sweepstakes – could enhance the gift with a valuable prize pack.
Everyone who purchases a membership by Dec. 31, 2009 automatically receives one entry per membership into the NASCAR Hall of Fame VIP Sweepstakes. In honor of NASCAR’s 62-year history, 62 winners will be randomly selected in January to receive the following prize package:

The NASCAR Hall of Fame offers six levels of memberships, all of which include unlimited entry for one year. If the membership is purchased by May 10, 2011, the member also will receive a charter designation and commemorative items to mark their unique status as a first-year member.
The Rookie Racer is $25 per year for children ages 5 -12, Crew Chief is $50 per year for ages 13 and up, and the Pit Crew Family Pack is $150 per year for two adults and all children under the age of 18. The more comprehensive charter packages are a $250 Winner’s Membership, $500 Champion’s Membership and $1,000 Legend’s Membership. These levels offer a plethora of added benefits ranging from parking vouchers and discounted guest passes to invitations to private functions at the NASCAR Hall of Fame and opportunities to attend the coveted first-year Induction Ceremony.

For a tax deductible gift, holiday shoppers can purchase a commemorative brick inscribed with a personal message to be seen by the thousands of NASCAR Hall of Fame visitors each year. The commemorative bricks will be located in the Ceremonial Plaza in front of the main entrance of the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
Commemorative bricks ordered before Dec. 31, 2009 will be placed in the Ceremonial Plaza in time for the May 11, 2010 grand opening events. Bricks will still be on sale after Dec. 31 but will not be placed until after the inaugural May activities.
The 4x8 bricks include up to three lines of text for $150 and $65 for each replica. The 8x8 bricks include up to six lines of text for $300 and $125 for each replica. The 8X8 logo bricks include a logo and up to four lines of text for $325 and $150 for a replica. Logos are available for a variety of drivers and racetracks.
A portion of the NASCAR Hall of Fame Commemorative Brick Program purchase is tax-deductible. Commemorative bricks can be ordered online at www.nascarhall.com/brick or at 888.NHF-BRKS (888-643-2757).
