NASCAR Hall of Fame’s 2014 Race Viewing Party Schedule Announced

February 19, 2014

$10 Race Viewing Parties Include Daytona 500 on Feb. 23, Aaron’s 499 on May 4 and more

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Feb. 19, 2014) – Fans and their families are invited to the NASCAR Hall of Fame to experience the thrill of watching a race on the big screen in the High Octane Theater. Select NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races will be shown throughout the 2014 race season. The lineup begins with the Daytona 500 on Feb. 23, continues throughout the year with several day and night races, and ends with the crowning of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 16.

“It's hard to beat the experience of attending a race in person, but fans looking for the next best alternative will find it at a race viewing party at the NASCAR Hall of Fame,” said Winston Kelley, NASCAR Hall of Fame executive director. “Watching the race on the big screen, hearing the engines revving up on theater speakers and listening in on race teams through a scanner makes for a memorable race experience for those who can’t travel to every race or are just looking for a fun way to cheer on their favorite driver with other fans.”

The 278-seat High Octane Theater features comfortable high-back rocking seats and a 64-foot-wide, curved projection screen with surround sound. Admission to each race viewing party is $10 for the general public and free for NASCAR Hall of Fame members. Tickets include admission to the race viewing party and the use of a personal race scanner. To cap off the experience, the two large side screens in the theater will feature direct-from-track, commercial free in-car feeds of two drivers, giving fans a behind-the-wheel view of the race. Food, soft drinks, beer and wine will be available for purchase at the race viewing parties.
